WASHINGTON – The first lady of the United States, Melania Trump, canceled a rare joint appearance with her husband, Donald Trump, at a campaign rally on Tuesday due to a “persistent cough”, a spokeswoman said. Melania and the president were diagnosed with Covid-19 earlier this month.
“Mrs. Trump continues to feel better every day after her recovery from Covid-19, but with a persistent cough and, as a precaution, she will not be traveling today,” Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

The first lady’s presence alongside Trump in Erie, Pennsylvania, would be the first at a campaign rally in more than a year.
Diagnosed with Covid-19 at the same time as her husband, on October 1, Melania announced last week that a new test was negative for the virus.
The president was hospitalized for three days due to illness and, after saying he was at risk of death, now appears to have recovered. The First Lady’s case has been described as considerably milder.
However, in the unusual statement entitled “My personal experience with Covid-19”, posted on October 14 on her Twitter account, Melania Trump said the sequels were harsh.

“It seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms for the next few days. I felt aches and pains in my body, coughing and a headache, and I felt extremely tired most of the time,” she said.
According to the first lady, unlike the president, who received intense experimental drug therapy and oxygen, she opted “for a more natural path in terms of medicines, preferring vitamins and healthy foods”.

It was in that statement that he revealed that his 14-year-old son Barron had also been infected, although he has now fully recovered.
“I encourage everyone to continue to live as healthy a life as possible,” wrote Melania Trump. “A balanced diet, clean air and vitamins are really essential to keep our bodies healthy”, he added, also highlighting the importance of “compassion” and “humility”.
Trump has been holding at least one election rally a day for the past two weeks before the election, but he has not shared the stage with his wife since her speech to the Republican National Convention in August directly from the White House.
