Trump then makes a touchdown before being attacked by another player.
The real moment came during an NFL game between the 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.
Trump left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday and brought Marine One back to the White House. He took off his mask almost immediately despite suffering from COVID and relying on a cocktail of experimental drugs to recover.
Trump saluted, waved and then started shooting a video on the balcony of the south portico. He returned to a mansion where several aides and household workers also have the virus, and from where he promises he will soon leave to go on the campaign.
The removal of his mask was a harrowing end to three days of drama in which he switched to Walter Reed on Marine One on Friday, apparently receiving repeated oxygen and medication that were not available to ordinary Americans.
The campaign released the video just 24 hours after senior campaign advisor Jason Miller stated the president was ready to lead the response to COVID-19.
The president gave his trademark stance of two thumbs up when he returned home after his hospital treatment
Speaking to CNN in an interview with CNN, Miller said the protocols will not change on upcoming rallies as Trump will try to gain momentum and beat [COVID-19] as a country in the weeks leading up to the November 3rd election.
Miller said, “When I spoke to the President about 15 or 20 minutes ago, he said another thing that I found very illuminating. He said, "I know what it's like to go through this. We are going to beat this as a country. When I get out of here we are going to talk a lot about COVID and how we beat it as a country."
"I think there is some level of understanding as someone who has been through it themselves, where they can relate to people. The understanding that people have gone through this covid virus, this China virus that hit us "said Miller, who defended Trump's actions.
"And this is the most important thing in this country and President Trump is ready to take the lead," he added.
