In the meantime, President Trump’s reelection team has launched a new initiative to get his message out while he recovers from COVID.
On Saturday, the campaign announced “Operation MAGA,” which will deploy high profile surrogates across the country until the President returns to the campaign trail. Those who are poised to campaign on his behalf included Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
“Operation MAGA will fire up the entire MAGA universe to keep President Trump’s campaign at full speed until our commander in chief returns to the campaign trail,” stated campaign manager Bill Stepien. “We also encourage all of the President’s supporters to pick up the banner themselves by volunteering in our grassroots Army for Trump, flying their Trump flags, putting out more yard signs, and wearing their MAGA gear proudly.”
The vice president is also expected to hold in-person rallies after his vice presidential debate this upcoming Wednesday.
