Trump admits ‘I didn’t feel too great’ during Covid battle and appears to ‘lose his voice’ in rally speech

PRESIDENT Donald Trump confessed on Monday that he "didn't feel too great" after he was diagnosed with Covid-19 two weeks ago.

Trump told a crowd of his supporters in Prescott, Arizona, that he wasn't feeling good and that he "didn't like to admit that."

The president said that when you're in his position, "you have a million doctors" working to get you better.

Trump appeared to lose his voice as he spoke to his fans at the Prescott Regional Airport.

Trump went on to say he's planning to make regeneron -- the drug that he claims cured his coronavirus -- "available for everybody for free."

Last week, he said he was seeking an emergency authorization of the drug, which he has said made him feel like "Superman."

Trump is one of less than 10 people who were able to access the Regeneron one under “compassionate use” rules to treat coronavirus without enrolling in any study.

The drug is not a cure, but experimental antibody treatments like the one Trump was given are among the most promising therapies being tested for treating and preventing coronavirus infections.

The antibody drugs, which work to help the immune system clear the virus, are still in testing, and their safety and effectiveness aren't yet known.

"For me it was a cure," Trump told the crowd on Monday. "It wasn't a therapeutic. It was a cure."

At the event, Trump called CNN "dumb bast**ds" and claimed the news network is only covering the coronavirus pandemic to try to prevent Americans from voting in the election.

"You turn on CNN that's all they cover," Trump said. "Covid, Covid pandemic, Covid."

"They're trying to talk everybody out of voting. They're not buying it, CNN, you dumb bast**rds."

Trump went on to say that "all" CNN host Chris Cuomo, who was diagnosed with coronavirus earlier this year, talks about is Covid.

"I'm not sure he had it," the president alleged. "Only time his ratings were up was when he had Covid."

Less than three weeks ago, Trump was rushed to the Walter Reed medical center in Maryland after contracting the deadly virus.

His diagnosis came as a slew of White House employees and guests also tested positive for the virus an event in the Rose Garden for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett turned out to be a super-spreader event.

Melania and Barron Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Chris Christie, Kayleigh McEnany, Hope Hicks, and several others, all contracted the virus in late September or early October.
