Breaking News. BETHESDA, Md. — President Donald Trump is set to leave Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and return to the White House on Monday at 6:30 p.m. - EDT., according to a tweet by Trump on Monday afternoon.
Diagnosed with Covid-19 last week, Trump was transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center early Friday evening.
The president tweeted: “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! 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!”
At a briefing Monday afternoon, White House physician Sean Conley the president meets all the discharge criteria.
“Though he may not be entirely out of the woods yet, the team and I agree that all our evaluations -- and most importantly, his clinical status -- support the president’s safe return home,” Conley said.
The hospital charge does not mean Trump is Covid-19 free.
