President Trump posted an update sans tie on his health from Walter Reed Hospital Saturday night, where said he was feeling a bit better and thanked those who have prayed for and sent condolences to him.
"We're working hard to get me all the way back," Trump said. "I have to be back because we still have to make America great again."
The president also acknowledged that the next few days are crucial in his recovery. Many patients that develop severe cases often have a worsening in symptoms between days 5-10.
Trump indicated that he had been given the choice to stay upstairs in the White House, but had opted to go to Walter Reed so he didn't have to stay quarantined in a single room.
"I can't do that. I had to be out front, and this is America," he said. "This is the United States. This is the greatest country in the world. This is the most powerful country in the world. I can't be locked up in a room upstairs and totally safe and just say, 'Hey, whatever happens, happens.' I can't do that. We have to confront problems. As a leader, you have to confront problems."
This here doesn't surprise me in the least. This is a guy who is constantly on the move. He has energy my kids don‘t even have. Just watching him is sometimes exhausting. Can you imagine Trump stuck in a room for two weeks? He'd be bouncing off the walls (and no doubt live-tweeting every moment of it). Love him or hate him, Trump was elected because he's a fighter, and I'd say he's doing a pretty good job of pummeling the Rona right now.
The president also discussed his medical treatment, referring to the new therapeutics that are available as "miracles from God." His doctor released a note today detailing the medicines he has received.
I'll leave you with a YouTube comment that is too good to not share. 'Murica!
