When President Trump walked out of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, he said words that needed to be said. After all, the leader of the free world is someone to gain strength from in times of need. People need not listen to the hysteria being fed by Democrats and mainstream media.

Democrats have become focused on promoting fear and panic over the pandemic, whereas the president and other Republicans have chosen to focus on optimism and hope, a much healthier approach.

On Monday afternoon, after a three-night stay at Walter Reed for treatment for the CCP Virus (COVID-19), the president took to Twitter to spread words of encouragement to all Americans.

“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good!” Trump exclaimed. “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!”

A previous reporter at the New York Times and the author of “Unreported Truths” Alex Berenson, heaped praise on the president for his comments, and declared Trump’s tweet as “maybe the smartest comment @realDonaldTrump has ever made.”

During his appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Berenson explained the significance of Trump’s tweet.

“For too long we have let this virus – and the media’s hysteria around it – dominate us,” Berenson wrote. “We need to take back our lives, our schools, and our whole world.”

“That might be the most presidential thing this president has ever said,” Berenson began. “He’s not actually saying ‘Don’t be afraid of COVID.’ He’s saying don’t be afraid of one another. Because this is a respiratory virus. It spreads between people. And the only way to make it go away permanently is to lock us all away permanently. And that can’t happen. That is not compatible with life.”

During his time at The Times, Berenson concentrated his reporting on the pharmaceutical industry and now has focused on challenging the narratives on the response to the CCP Virus.

He maintains the models that guide the responses to the pandemic are flawed.

“Six months ago, even then, that response really didn’t make sense, but there were reasons for it,” Berenson explained.

“But we are six months on, and we know that if you believe the [World Health Organization] and 750 million people have been infected with this, that the death rate is about 1 in 1000… if you believe in the CDC numbers, it might be 997… it is a tiny death rate.

And we have gone crazy, and we have sacrificed our kids, and we have sacrificed society, and Donald Trump walked out of that hospital today and said what needed to be said. We have to stop being so afraid of this.”

He continued, “This country—we put people on the moon! We’re the first manned flight in 1903. What has happened to us that this rather dismal virus has scared everyone to death? I do not understand it and we have to get out of this.”
