President Trump called into Hannity Thursday night, where he boasted about his health and recovery from COVID-19. Despite his pronouncements, the president sounded like he was struggling at times with symptoms from the virus.

Trump announced early on Oct. 2 that he tested positive for COVID-19. Later that day, he was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was given a cocktail of cutting-edge drugs and antibodies. And upon his return to the White House on Monday, he declared, “Don’t be afraid.”

Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, has stated that the president is symptom-free. And during his phone interview with Sean Hannity, the president himself said he was feeling great. However, it did not go unnoticed when the president repeatedly struggled to clear his throat.

Hannity asked the president several times about his latest test results, but Trump never gave a straight answer. After being asked a third time about whether he tested negative for the virus that has claimed moree thann 210,000 American lives, the president said, “Well, what we're doing is probably the test will be tomorrow, the actual test, because there's no reason to test all the time, but they found very little infection or virus, if any. I don't know if they found any, I didn't go into it greatly with the doctors.”

Despite the appearance of symptoms, Trump says he hopes to hold a rally as early as Saturday.

Hannity airs weeknights at 9 p.m. on Fox News Channel.
