President Donald Trump on Saturday evening released a video on his health after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week.
Presumably speaking from Walter Reed hospital near the District of Columbia, Trump posted a video where he thanked the staff of Walter Reed.
“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well. I feel much better now, we’re working hard to get me all the way back—I have to be back because we still have to make America great again,” he said in the clip posted on Twitter. “We’re gonna beat this coronavirus or whatever you wanna call it,” he said, referring to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
The president said that “we still have steps to go … and finish that job,” adding that he is looking to work on therapeutics to defeat the virus
“I’m starting to feel good … I just want to be thankful for the support I’ve seen,” he said, adding that he is “most appreciative” of the well-wishes from the “American people.”
Trump said that he was given the option to “stay in the White House” and “lock yourself in,” adding that “I can’t do that.”
The president also added that the first lady, Melania Trump, is “also doing well” after the first lady “asked [him] to say something” about her health.
“So I just want to tell you that I’m starting to feel good. You don’t know over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test, so we’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days,” he said, adding: “We have things happening that look like they’re miracles coming down from God.”
