President Trump said he's "feeling great" as he vowed to defeat Covid in a comeback speech at the White House on Saturday.
This is Trump's first public speech since he revealed he was diagnosed with coronavirus on Friday, October 2.
"I'm feeling great, how about you," Trump told supporters at the White House.
"I want to thank all of you for your prayers… In that hospital, I was watching down on so many people..." Trump continued.
He added : "Our nation is going to defeat this terrible China virus… and we're producing powerful therapies and drugs."
The name "China virus," which has often been used by Trump to refer to Covid-19, has been slammed as "racist" by some critics.
He then said of coronavirus: "It's going to disappear. It's disappearing."
Trump also swore he would beat Democrats in the upcoming election, as he said: "We cannot allow our country to become a socialist nation."
He spoke to supporters for around 15 minutes, before turning around and heading back inside the White House.
As he addressed supporters, he also dubbed coronavirus lockdowns "unscientific."
"We're not gonna let it happen," he told the crowd.
Hundreds of maskless "Back the Blue" fans were seen rallying before Trump's Covid comeback speech to thousands at the White House on Saturday.
