Trump Holds Largest 'Radio Rally' in US History, Talking Two Hours to Rush Limbaugh


President Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail Friday for what was billed by his campaign as "the largest virtual rally in radio history" on the Rush Limbaugh Show. 

Trump, 74, participated via telephone for two hours on Limbaugh's popular radio program to speak directly to the American people about the Trump administration's record of "Promises Made, Promises Kept".

Listeners also had the chance to ask the President questions. 

Limbaugh, who's battling advanced lung cancer, hosted the show by asking the 45th President questions and commenting on events that transpired during Trump's first term in office. 

The president, who was diagnosed on Oct. 1 with coronavirus and hospitalized for three days, says he wants to get back on the campaign trail as soon as this weekend.

Trump told the conservative radio host he was feeling much better, and he thinks it was an antibody cocktail from the pharmaceutical company Regeneron that helped him recover. 

"I was not in great shape," Trump said. "I recovered immediately, almost immediately. I might not have recovered at all from COVID."

On the subject of the Russia investigation, the president said he would be disappointed if the Durham report will not be released until after the presidential election. 

According to a report published by Axios, Attorney General William Barr told Republican leaders that US Attorney John Durham's report on the origins of the Russia investigation will not be released before the election. 

"I will be very disappointed if that Axios piece that you read to me is true," Trump told Limbaugh. "Because they've had plenty of time to get this done." 

During the conversation between the two men, Trump also brought up the next round of the economic recovery stimulus package that's been in limbo for months.

Trump said he would like to see a larger amount than what has been proposed by both parties.

"I'm telling you something I don't tell anybody else because maybe it helps or maybe it hurts negotiations," Trump said. "I would like to see a bigger package."

As CBN News reported earlier this week, Trump had broken off talks with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), accusing her of acting in bad faith, stating that negotiations would not begin again until after the election.

Then he did an about-face and called for the House and Senate to pass several coronavirus stimulus bills. He supports the idea of $25 billion for the airlines and $135 billion for small businesses, as well as $1,200 checks for the American people.
