“The degree to which Trump benefits from a post-Covid bounce will depend largely on the speed and manner of his hoped-for recovery.
That will affect whether he is seen as weakened – or will the myth of invincibility be reinforced? A sympathetic response to a pollster’s inquiry is different from the decision taken at the polling booth on whether to grant another four years to the same leader. In conditions that are entirely novel for the whole world, other leaders’ [Boris Johnson and Jair Bolsonaro’s] past is unlikely to prove prologue for Donald Trump.”

On Sunday, doctors said that Trump had experienced two drops in his oxygen levels but continued to improve. Dr. Brian Garibaldi said that “if he continues to look and feel as well as he does today, our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as tomorrow [Monday] to the White House where he can continue his treatment course.”
Over the weekend, Trump posted twovideos to Twitter discussing his condition and thanking his supporters. He also greeted supporters outside of Walter Reed Medical Center in a presidential motorcade on Sunday.
