President Donald Trump announced Monday that he will leave Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, downplaying fears of Covid-19 after his announcement last week that he had tested positive for the illness.
“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,” the president wrote on Twitter. “I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”
Trump’s discharge comes at a potentially delicate time in his path to recovery, less than four days after his Covid-19 diagnosis was first made public.
