After a long weekend in the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, it appears that President Trump is well enough to return to the White House and continue his quarantine period there. 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!”
His return was suggested earlier in the day by Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Speaking to Fox News earlier in the day, he said that teh president had “continued to improve overnight and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule.” He added that “We are still optimistic that he will be able to return to the White House later today, with his medical professionals making that determination later today.”
The White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, has announced that she has also tested positive. McEnany is the latest in a long list of White House and Trump Administration staff who have been diagnosed.
She released a statement saying:
“After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms. No reporters, producers, or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit. Moreover, I definitely had no knowledge of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday. As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time. With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”
