CANDACE Owens praised Donald Trump and said America should "unmask" after Joe Biden ripped the president for not wearing a face covering.

On Tuesday, Owens took to Twitter to issue her support for Trump during his coronavirus battle, after he was discharged from Walter Reed hospital just 72 hours after his admission.

She was responding to a video posted by his Dem rival, which showed Trump taking off his mask during his triumphant return to the White House and Biden putting his mask on at an event.

"Democrats are once again, categorically misreading America," Owens wrote. "Americans want to be unmasked and reopened.

"The fear of Covid has subsided and been replaced with a deeper fear of government overreach."

"Trump is winning on this issue, BIGLY," the conservative commentator concluded, followed by the hashtag "UnMaskAmerica."


Owens previously blasted Biden for telling Trump to "condemn white supremacists" during the presidential debate when "riots are orchestrated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter."

Her statements about Covid-19 echoed the 74-year-old president's assurances to the public after he was discharged from the Maryland hospital.

Trump released a video praising the Walter Reed staff but he urged people not to live in fear of the virus with just four weeks to go until the US presidential election.

"I didn't feel so good and two days ago – I could have left two days ago – two days ago, I felt great," he said. "Like better than I have in a long time."

Before his return to Washington DC on Monday, Trump reassured the American public on Twitter, saying: "Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.


"We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"

The president was airlifted to the medical facility last Friday, where he had received medical treatment following his diagnosis.

Footage appeared to show Trump gasping for breath and "wincing in pain" on the South Portico terrace yesterday – but the president said he "feels good" and tweeted that he would be "back on the campaign trial soon."

Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he would be participating in the next debate against Biden, 77, writing: "I am looking forward to the debate on the evening of Thursday, October 15th in Miami. It will be great!"

As his battle with the virus continues, Trump did urge Americans to be cautious and careful as he prepares to get back on the campaign trail.

"Get out there, be careful," he said in his videoed address. "We have the best medicines in the world, and it’ll all happen very shortly. And they’re all getting approved and the vaccines are coming momentarily."

The infection has spread rapidly around the White House since his top aide Hope Hicks fell ill last week and Trump's Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed she tested positive on Monday.
