Trump says he is ‘feeling well,’ praises Walter Reed staff in Twitter video

President Donald Trump said Saturday that he was “feeling well” and praised the doctors and staff at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he has been hospitalized since Friday afternoon.

All eyes have been on Trump since it was announced late Thursday night that he and the first lady had tested positive for the coronavirus, and that attention only grew more intense on Friday after he was transported to Walter Reed to be monitored and treated for moderate symptoms.

“I am feeling well”

President Trump struck an optimistic tone in a short video clip posted to Twitter on Friday ahead of his departure for the hospital and, later Friday night, tweeted, “Going well, I think!”

On Saturday afternoon, the president posted another video on Twitter to sing the praises of the Walter Reed staff and again repeated that he was “feeling well.”

“Doctors, Nurses and ALL at the GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center, and others from likewise incredible institutions who have joined them, are AMAZING!!! Tremendous progress has been made over the last 6 months in fighting this PLAGUE. With their help, I am feeling well!” he tweeted. Watch below:

Doctors provide promising update

A few hours later, Trump posted another video clip to Twitter, this time from a work area within the special executive suite at the hospital that is dedicated specifically to the U.S. president, whoever that may be.

Fox News noted that the top-notch medical team at Walter Reed that was caring for the president also struck an optimistic tone, though a bit more cautious.

Nevertheless, the doctors, led by White House physician Sean Conley, indicated that they were pleased with the president’s response to the treatment regimen, which has included remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone.

Though no specific date was given, it was clearly implied that, barring any setbacks, President Trump will be discharged from the hospital to continue his recuperation at the White House in another day or two.

Let us all pray that Trump continues to react well to treatment and continues to show progress toward a full and rapid recovery. The nation depends on it.
