DONALD Trump coughed on live TV as he revealed plans to hold a rally in Florida as soon as Saturday - after the White House doctor said he'd be "safe" to attend public events by then.
The president appeared on Sean Hannity Thursday night saying he and his campaign staff are looking to hold a rally in Florida Saturday night and claiming he is virtually "virus-free".
He also insisted there are no traces of the coronavirus in him, just seconds before coughing on air
"I think I'm going to try doing a rally on Saturday night if we have enough time to put it together," Trump told the Fox News host during a live telephone interview.
"But we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in Florida Saturday, might come back and do one in Pennsylvania the following night," the president continued. "I feel so good."
Trump gave credit to the Regeneron experimental drug that he claims allowed him to leave the hospital early.
"It's incredible, the kind of things we're coming up with," Trump said of the drug. "It actually made me better."
Just moments later when Hannity asked Trump why he decided against participating in a virtual debate with Biden, the president attempted to silence a cough before excusing himself and carrying on.
