In his three Twitter appearances today, President Trump said he felt better, was well cared for by the health professionals who were assisting him and had the energy to continue working even from the hospital.
In his struggle to heal quickly from the CCP Virus, President Trump took time to communicate his health status and thank the staff who are caring for him. In one of his Twitter appearances he wrote, “Doctors, Nurses and ALL at the GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center, and others from likewise incredible institutions who have joined them, are AMAZING!!!Tremendous progress has been made over the last 6 months in fighting this PLAGUE. With their help, I am feeling well!”
The president’s message was released minutes after the press conference ended in which the president’s doctor, Sean Conley, said from the White House that President Trump is doing very well at the Walter Reed Center, without fever for the last 24 hours and that the medical team is “extremely happy” with the progress being made in the president’s health. This was reported by Fox News.
Conley absolutely denied reports that the president was having difficulty breathing, “had a little cough, had a fever and mostly felt exhausted. He also added that Trump will continue to be treated with remdesivir and antibodies and that the medical team is encouraging him to eat, drink, move, and work.
According to Breitbart, Dr. Sean Dooley also commented on President Trump’s condition at the conference and said, “The president this morning is not on oxygen, not having difficulty breathing or walking around the medical unit upstairs.”
On Friday night, President Trump tweeted a short video speech before his departure from the White House to Walter Reed.
“I want to thank everyone for the tremendous support,” the president said. “I am going to Walter Reed Hospital. I think I’m doing very well. But we’ll make sure everything goes smoothly. The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much. I appreciate it. I will never forget it. Thank you.”

Some officials close to President Trump, such as campaign manager Bill Stepien, also tested positive for the virus on Friday. Stepien did not experience symptoms worse than those of a common flu but has also been isolated in quarantine, as indicated by health protocol.
As reported earlier in The BL, Stepien is expected to continue working normally from home. The Trump campaign said that events scheduled for the president and his circle would be moved mostly to virtual platforms and some would be postponed.
President Trump’s entire regular working circle was tested for the virus and several people who attended the ceremony last week at the White House where the president officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett were found to be positive, including Republican Sens. Mike Lee and Thom Tillis.
While others close to the president tested negative on Friday, including White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and the president’s sons, Eric, Donald Jr. and Barron Trump and his daughter Ivanka.
