President Trump has been receiving treatment for the CCP Virus at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. In typical President Trump fashion, he is thinking about Americans and their concern for his health.

In a tweet, he promised his supporters holding vigil outside the hospital, “a little surprise.” After appearing in a short video, the president delighted supporters by making a quick trip outside enclosed in a car.

“We’re going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have,” President Trump said in the video. “They’ve been out there for a long time and they’ve got Trump flags and they love our country so I’m not telling anybody but you but I’m about to make a little surprise visit.”

Shortly afterward, the president left his quarters at the hospital and made his surprise visit, driving past the crowds in the car, masked up and waving to supporters, and giving the thumbs-up sign, indicating he was in fine spirits, as reported by Fox News.

The president’s drive-by was given the all-clear by Walter Reed medical staff and the White House.

“Appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the president and all those supporting it, including PPE,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement. “The movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.”

The president had earlier expressed his thanks for those offering condolences and support outside the hospital. “I really appreciate all of the fans and supporters outside of the hospital,” the president tweeted Sunday, Oct. 4. “The fact is, they really love our Country and are seeing how we are MAKING IT GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!”

 

Other supporters had assembled on Saturday night at a gathering organized by Women for America First, where they held a prayer vigil. Some had TRUMP 2020 signs, and with music blaring that would generally be played at Trump rallies. They returned later Sunday morning, waving flags and honking car horns. Many supporters had piled flowers on and around the signage outside the main entrance to the hospital, reported Fox News.

President Trump was admitted to Walter Reed on Friday after being diagnosed with the CCP Virus. He was placed on oxygen on the same day.

First Lady Melania Trump also tested positive; however, she remained in quarantine at the White House.

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley assured the public he was “extremely happy with the progress” the president was making.

Though a senior administration official told Fox News, “Early indications are for an extremely good prognosis—but the next 48 hours will be critical.”

“If you look at the therapeutics which I’m taking right now some of them and others that are coming out soon that are looking like, frankly they’re miracles,” President Trump said in a video posted to his Twitter Saturday night.

“I don’t know the next period of a few days, I guess—that’s the real test so we’ll be seeing what happened over those next couple of days,” he added.

“I learned a lot about COVID [CCP Virus] … and I get it, and I understand it,” President Trump commented. “This the real school … this isn’t the ‘let’s read-the-book’ school,” he added. “In the meantime, we love the USA, and we love what’s happening,” he added.

A delay in confirmation hearings for the president’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is being pushed by Democrats in Congress, with GOP senators stressing the process will go ahead as planned.

On social media, both Republicans and Democrats have voiced support and well wishes for the president and first lady’s speedy recovery.

Twitter has come out in support of the president, addressing any negative comments that arise. “Tweets that wish or hope for death, serious bodily harm, or fatal disease against anyone are not allowed and will need to be removed,” a Twitter representative posted following the announcement that the president had been admitted to the hospital.
