President Donald Trump announced that he would be leaving Walter Reed Medical Center Monday evening after being hospitalized for contracting COVID-19.

"I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M." Trump tweeted Monday. Feeling really good!"


"Don’t be afraid of Covid," the president added. "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!" he claimed.

President arrived at the hospital on Friday and remained there throughout the weekend.


During his stay, Trump took some time to offer some advice.

In a video he shared on social media on Sunday, the president said,“I learned a lot about COVID. I learned it by really going to school, this is the real school, this isn’t the ‘Let’s read the book school’ and I get it, and I understand it.”

Trump's White House physician, Dr. Sean Conley said, “The president has been a phenomenal patient. He has never once pushed us to do anything that was beyond what is a safe and reasonable practice.”


Throngs of supporters gathered outside the hospital to show their support for President Trump throughout his stay.






On Sunday, President Donald Trump surprised supporters by taking a slow drive-by in an SUV past the crowd showing support for him as he is treated for the coronavirus at Walter Reed hospital.

The president, wearing a mask and seated inside a Secret Service SUV, waved at his supporters as they cheered and waved back at the Commander-in-Chief.



Prior to his visit, White House staff posted a video of the president on Twitter previewing a “special surprise.”



“I learned a lot about COVID,” he said in the video. “I learned it by really going to school, this is the real school, this isn’t the ‘Let’s read the book school’ and I get it, and I understand it.”



After the latest press conference from Donald Trump's doctors on Sunday, CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said that White House physician Dr. Sean Conley was “purposely misleading” the public.

Gupta also insisted that Team Trump is “hiding things.”


CNN host Jake Tapper said of the doctors' press conference outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, “Some interesting comments from Commander Conley, who before this episode had an impeccable reputation. He was asked why he didn’t give all the information yesterday, and he said he was trying to, I’m quoting, trying to reflect the upbeat attitude of the team and not give any information that would steer the course of his illness."

"Is that what a physician is supposed to do?” Tapper asked.

Gupta replied, “No. I mean, you’ve got to be honest. You’ve got to be transparent—all these details matter. I mean, he is out and coming out to brief the public about the president. That’s the briefing that’s happening. If you are going to do that, then you have to be absolutely honest. And it wasn’t just sort of conveying an upbeat attitude."

"He was — it was purposely misleading yesterday about a very basic issue, which is whether or not the president had been on supplemental oxygen is one of those issues," Gupta continued. "That’s important, Jake, because when you look at patients the way that doctors approach this, we know his age, we know his pre-existing risk factors, you can immediately start to assess his risk as more data comes in that risk sort of stratification changes."

Gupta added, If he required oxygen, that definitely indicates that there was some impacts, significant impact on his lungs, and that puts him on a different trajectory.”

Tapper replied, “I am the son of a doctor and a nurse, and I understand the inclination in the public to believe doctors," Tapper said. "We want to believe doctors. We also have to note there is a long and ugly history in this country of presidents not being honest about their health with the American people and doctors being used as part of that cover-up. One hundred years ago, it was Woodrow Wilson, FDR, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and on and on and on. It’s the reason when I interviewed Joe Biden, made him give a pledge, would he always be upfront about all aspects of his health in real time."

"We’re not getting that from Donald Trump and his team right now," Tapper declared. "We are not getting all of the facts. Why?”

Gupta responded, “Well you know I’d have to say that they are hiding things, Jake. I mean, I hate to say it.”
