“Sikhs perform Ardaas prayer for ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ outside Wlter Reade! Nanak naam chardi kala; tere bhaney, sarbat da bhalla! In every Sikh daily prayer we ask God’s blessings on all mankind. We are praying for the health of every man and woman, and for our president!” Twitter user Harmeet K. Dhillon wrote.

An African American supporter who stood outside of Walter Reed to wish the president a speedy recovery, saying that President Trump has been “fighting for us, so I’m going to fight for him.”

“Since I live an hour and a half away, I thought it’d be important for me to come out here and show my support for the president and to show how much I love him and what he’s doing for our country,” he said.

“I know many people tell me I shouldn’t support Trump because of the color of my skin, but they never ask me, why Trump? He is fighting for America. He is for the American way. I’m for America. I’m for the American way. That is why I am here today,” he added.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people participated in a giant boat parade in Florida to support President Trump.

Thousands of New Yorkers also turned out on Saturday to pray for the president as some 700 flag-bedecked vehicles gathered for a pro-Trump caravan that stretched for 4 miles along the New York State Thruway, reported NewYork Post.

“People have it written all over their cars — ‘Get Well, President Trump,’” said Tina Forte of the Bronx. “No one should be wishing him any bad thoughts. Have a little respect.”

President Trump send a message from Walter Reed on Saturday, telling the American people that he felt “much better now” and predicting that he will be back “soon.”

“I have to be back, because we still have to make America great again. We’ve done an awfully good job of that, but we still have steps to go, and we have to finish that job,” the president said.
