Donald Trump says he’s leaving Walter Reed Medical Center after three days of treatment for symptoms of COVID-19.
On Monday, just days after Trump announced his positive diagnosis and his subsequent hospitalization, the Celebrity in Chief said that he will be leaving the hospital at 6:30 pm, now feeling better than ever.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 pm. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of COVID. 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 said.
Trump’s announcement comes just hours after his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for the coronavirus. Both McEnany and Trump were just two of several Trump aides and republicans who contracted the virus at a super spreader event for Trump’s SCOTUS nomination.
Trump is expected to continue his recovery at the White House.
