President Donald Trump is considering a televised address to the nation after returning to the White House from his three-day stay in the hospital for treatment of COVID-19, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Trump and his campaign have sought to cast his return as a triumphant presidential moment just weeks before Election Day.

The idea for the address, reported by Bloomberg News, emerges as more coronavirus infections emergedin the White House. One of the president’s military aides, Jayna McCarron, tested positive, as did one of the president’s valets, who traveled with Trump last week, according to people familiar with the matter.

The duties of Trump’s five military aides — one from each service branch — include carrying the nuclear “football,” the system the president would use to initiate a nuclear weapons attack. The valets also come from the ranks of the military.

The top White House physician, Sean Conley, has said that Trump will continue to recuperate in isolation at the White House until he’s no longer infectious.
