WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump insists he is ready to resume campaign rallies and feels “perfect” one week after his diagnosis with the coronavirus that has killed more than 210,000 Americans. His doctor says the president has ”completed his course of therapy” for the disease. Trump has not been seen in public — other than in White House-produced videos — since his Monday return from the military hospital where he received experimental treatments for the virus. His physician, Navy Cmdr. Sean Conley, says Trump will be able to safely “return to public engagements” on Saturday.
