Democrat nominee Joe Biden sounds like he’s “trying to weasel his way out of a debate” with his call to cancel his next match up with President Donald Trump if the president is still sick with COVID-19, Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller said Wednesday.
“If President Trump is cleared, and he’s healthy and he’s ready to go, then, of course, we’re pushing forward,” Miller told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings With Maria.” “The president fully plans on being there next week, ready to rock.”
He insisted that Trump is “feeling much better.”
“I spoke with him last night,” said Miller. “We’re going to make sure we take this smartly, as far as his recovery goes, and he’ll be ready for next week.”
The president’s diagnosis and short hospitalization have thrown “a little bit of wrinkle” in Trump’s campaign strategy, Miller conceded, but the campaign has launched “Operation MAGA.”
“Everyone will be fanning out all across the country, with 50 different events lined up over the next few days, immediately following tonight’s vice presidential debate,” said Miller. “It’s a way to show we’re going to be here for President Trump in the way he’s been here for us.”
But Trump is “chomping at the bit” to get back to his campaign and its rallies, said Miller.
“We’re going to do a few things with the president in the virtual space over the next few days until he’s back out there in person and then I think you’re going to see a very strong campaign push toward the end,” he said.
Miller also reacted to an assessment by Jan Hatzius, the chief economist for Goldman Sachs. Earlier this week, he said a Democrat “blue wave” taking over the White House and Congress would boost the U.S. and global economy, reports Fortune.
“Joe Biden having the support of Goldman Sachs, that’s a lot like being on the cover of Sports Illustrated,” Miller told Bartiromo. “Nothing but bad luck is going to come from that.”
