Trump, on Sean Hannity’s show, projects optimism about resuming rallies this weekend.

President Trump called into Sean Hannity’s show on Thursday night and, while giving vague answers to questions about his health, suggested a rapid return to the campaign trail that could violate public health guidelines.

Mr. Trump said he wanted to hold a rally in Florida on Saturday — just two days away — and another rally the following night in Pennsylvania. He went on to say he was in “great shape” — even as he paused on a few occasions and seemed to cough or clear his throat — and again presented the monoclonal antibody treatment he received as a miracle cure, even though there is no clinical trial data to evaluate its effectiveness.

He did not give a clear answer when Mr. Hannity asked if he had tested negative for the coronavirus: He first said he wouldn’t get an “actual test” until Friday, then suggested that he had already had a test and that it had found “very little infection or virus, if any,” and then said, “I don’t know if they found any. I didn’t go into it greatly with the doctors.”

Mr. Hannity also pushed the president to denounce the commission organizing this year’s debates for its decision to make next week’s forum virtual — a decision that prompted Mr. Trump to withdraw earlier in the day. At one point, Mr. Hannity suggested that Mr. Trump should organize his own debate.

“Well, I might,” Mr. Trump said, adding that he would want a “fair anchor” — perhaps, he said, Sean Hannity.
