President Trump is raring to beat the coronavirus and get back out on the campaign trail, advisors for his re-election bid said Sunday.

The commander-in-chief remains hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at least until Monday — but has been discussing the race via phone with campaign honchos.

“Once he gets out of the hospital, he’s ready to get back to the campaign trail,” senior campaign advisor Jason Miller told Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press” on NBC. “He sounded pretty energetic.”

Steve Cortes, also a senior advisor on the campaign, told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that it would only be a matter of time before Trump was back on the stump.

“He was as upbeat and assertive as he’s ever been,” said Cortes, describing a Saturday phone call between Trump and senior campaign staff. “This president is going to recover.”
