First Lady Melania Trump said she is “feeling good” and will rest in the White House as her husband, President Donald Trump, continues to stay at Walter Reed hospital after both tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
“My family is grateful for all of the prayers & support! I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home,” Melania Trump wrote. “Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus.”
President Trump made a last-minute surprise visit to his supporters outside Walter Reed in Maryland, briefly leaving the hospital in a car to thank the supporters. He wore a face mask during the encounter on Sunday evening.
“I really appreciate all of the fans and supporters outside of the hospital. The fact is, they really love our Country and are seeing how we are MAKING IT GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!” he wrote on Twitter.
Over the weekend, Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told news outlets that the first lady is doing well in her residence and stayed in contact with the president by phone. Their 14-year-old son, Barron, tested negative for the virus.
“All precautions are being taken to ensure he’s kept safe and healthy,” Grisham told news outlets about Barron.
