President Trump just announced that he will return to the White House from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland this evening.
“Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” the President shared on Twitter. “We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”
Early Friday morning, President Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the Coronavirus. “We will get through this together,” he said.
In a video shared yesterday, the President updated Americans on his health and thanked the incredible team of doctors and nurses at Walter Reed Medical Center for their care.
Out of an abundance of caution, President Trump spent the weekend working from the Presidential suite at Walter Reed. He received state-of-the-art care from a team of physicians, and his condition has continued to improve quickly.
The President also received some of the therapies that the Trump Administration has championed through Operation Warp Speed, a government-led and nationwide effort to develop a Coronavirus vaccine and COVID-19 therapeutics quickly.
A short while ago, Physician to the President Dr. Sean Conley provided Americans with an update about President Trump’s condition and his return to the White House.
“He has met or exceeded all standard hospital discharge criteria,” Dr. Conley said. “The team and I agree that all our evaluations—and, most importantly, his clinical status—support the president's safe return home where he'll be surrounded by world-class medical care 24/7.”
President Trump has continued to work tirelessly for the American people while fighting this virus. “He spent most of the afternoon conducting business,” read a memorandum from Dr. Conley that he released Saturday evening.
First Lady Melania Trump thanked Americans for their prayers and continued support. “I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home. Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus,” she wrote on Twitter.
