éé president trump is ready to resume public appearances to make up for lost time from his bout with the coronavirus.

éé chip reid is at the white house.

éé script: 20:20:04 trump on fox tonight: i feel really good.

I feel very strong.

In an interview on fox news friday night, president trump said he had completed his course of covid therapeutics and described his early symptoms as mild.

8:20:04 trump on fox/tucker carlson's show: i didn't feel strong.

I had no problem with breathing.

None of that.

But i didn't feel very strong, vital.

Didn't feel like a president should feel.

Something was off.

But earlier in the day, the president told rush limbaugh he was so sick last week he thought he might not make it.

It looked like it was going to be a big deal.

And you know what that means, right?

That means bad.

The president says he recovered quickly because he had immediate access to the doctors and the treatments.

20:32:22 we have a white house doctor who's great and you have so many great doctors.

It's a lot easier for me than somebody who doesn't have access to a doctor easily where it's a big deal to see a doctor.

The president insists he's good to go, but the white house has yet to disclose if he has tested negative for the virus which would indicate he's no longer contagious.

Biden nats while campaigning in nevada on friday, former vice president joe biden called the president's behavior "reckless."

éé we have an exclusive first look at the future of high speed rail travel , amtrak's new, faster, acela.

éé the rollout continues, despite word from amtrak that 24- hundred more employees face possible layoffs because of the pandemic.éé that's in addition to furloughs affecting about two- thousand employees that started last week.

éé kris van cleave visited the colorado facility where testing is taking place.

éé that is the sound of speed&next year america's fastest train will start rolling down the tracks between boston, new york and washington at up to 160 miles an hour.

And&we're getting a first look at the new acela as it undergoes speed testing at this sprawling 30- thousand acre facility outside pueblo colorado.

It's going to be a game changer for many people.

Amtrak vice president caroline decker kvc: why can't the us have as fast trains as other countries?

áá cd: in europe and in asia, you have a lot of infrastructure, a lot of right of ways that were built specifically for these designated high speed corridors.

The northeast corridor, which in many areas is more than 100 years old, was never designed for high speed trains.

The new trains will be 10 miles an hour faster than the current 20 year old high speed fleet.

Amtrak hopes to shave about 15 minutes off a trip between dc and boston, while carrying 25% more passengers and using 20% less engery.

Nats built by alstom in hornell new york, the new acela is part of a 2.4 billion dollar modernization effort that is continuing despite the pandemic and amtrak's decision to furlough or layoff more than 2000 employees.

Kvc given the pandemic, given the plummeting demand, why move forward with this project now?

áá cd we have to look to the future.

We owe it to the generations of americans that are here 10 years, 20 years from now kris: even as the new acela is racing down these test tracks at up to 165 mph, the coronavirus is forcing some redesigns on the inside of the train dc: we are improving some of the design looking at air conditioning, airflow dc: its airflows, its touchless, its installing sanitizing stations.

It's all those things.

The train meets stronger crash worthiness standards while promising a smoother ride.

On the inside it boasts improved wifi, and a host of contactless features including a self-service caf?

Car and a touchless restroom.
