President Trump shared a brief video on his Twitter page Saturday evening, updating the American people on his health and forecasting the recovery process.
In his remarks, the president thanked all the healthcare professionals at the Walter Reed Medical Center.
“I want to begin by thanking all of the incredible medical professionals — the doctors, the nurses, everybody — at Walter Reed Medical Center, I think it’s the finest in the world, for the incredible job they’ve been doing,” Trump said.
The president admitted he “was not feeling so well” when he was first sent to the hospital but he said he will “be back soon.”
“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well, I feel much better now,” he said. “We’re working hard to get me all the way back, I have to be back because we still have to Make America Great Again, we’ve done an awfully good job of that, but we still have steps to go and we have to finish that job, and I’ll be back, I think I’ll be back soon.”
Trump also said he was continuing to work within the confines of the hospital as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact “millions of people all over the world.”
“I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started and the way we’ve been doing and the kind of numbers that we’ve been doing, we’ve been so proud of it,” Trump continued. “But this was something that happened, and it’s happened to millions of people all over the world, and I’m fighting for them, not just in the U.S., I’m fighting for them all over the world.”
Trump also attributed his recovery to “miracles coming down from God.”
“We’re gonna beat this coronavirus or whatever you want to call it and we’re gonna beat it soundly,” Trump continued. “So many things have happened, if you look at the therapeutics, which I’m taking right now — some of them — and others are coming out soon that are looking like, frankly they’re miracles if you want to know the truth. They’re miracles. People criticize me when I say that but we have things happening that look like they are miracle coming down from God.”
“This is the greatest country in the world; this is the most powerful country in the world. I can’t be locked in a room upstairs.” https://t.co/W4ZoyaV3yJ
