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.
