Senior Trump campaign adviser says Trump is ‘as upbeat as ever’

Trump campaign Senior Adviser Steve Cortes issued an update on President Trump’s fight against COVID-19 on Sunday morning. 

Cortes said that the president is “upbeat and assertive as ever” as he enters his third day of quarantine.

Update on progress

“He’s doing well … We spoke to the president yesterday, we meaning senior campaign staff … He was as upbeat and assertive as he’s ever been,” Cortes said during a “Sunday Morning Futures” appearance.

“This president is going to recover, we are highly confident of that,” Cortes added.

President Trump was flown to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday for medical supervision after his medical team became “real concerned” about deteriorating symptoms including fever and low blood oxygen level.

However, since traveling to Walter Reed, Trump and his team have issued multiple statements updating the public about his progress.

“I’m very, very optimistic based on the current results,” White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Saturday, adding that Trump is “not out of the woods for the next 48 hours or so.”

Full steam ahead

The Trump campaign is reportedly undeterred during Trump’s convalescence and is said to be continuing “full speed” despite his hospitalization.

“There was not even one iota of the president feeling sorry for himself,” Cortes said.

“He said we are going to win this campaign. He is still governing actively as President of the United States even from the hospital,” the Trump campaign official continued. “We are fully confident that his recovery will be complete.”

Trump himself issued an update from Walter Reed on Saturday night, assuring supporters that he’s in good spirits.

“I’ll be back, I think I’ll be back soon,” Trump said in the video message. “And I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started and the way we’ve been doing. The kind of numbers we’ve been doing we’ve been so proud of it.”
