President Trump held a Saturday rally on the South Lawn of the White House with 300 to 400 attendees — his first public event in nine days.

Why it matters: It was the president's first event since he contracted the coronavirus, featuring conservative activist Candace Owens and the group “Blexit,” which seeks to convince Black voters to join the Republican Party.
