Cabrera fires back at Trump adviser defending Trump's Walter Reed outing
Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller defended President Donald Trump's actions following his positive coronavirus diagnosis, including leaving Walter Reed medical center for a photo-op visit to his supporters outside.
Democratic nominee Joe Biden issued an emotional response after the Atlantic reported that President Trump denigrated US service members. President Trump has denied the allegations in the report. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fired back at a reporter asking her about President Trump's response to a video of his alleged supporters firing paintballs at protesters. In November 2019, President Donald Trump made an unscheduled visit to Walter Reed hospital, which the White House dismissed as a "quick exam and labs." Now, new information is revealed about what really happened at this visit. Chris Cillizza explains. President Donald Trump announced that he will be discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Monday evening after three days of treatment, insisting that Americans should not be "afraid" of the novel coronavirus.
Trump, whose oxygen levels dropped as recently as Saturday and who is on several medications following his COVID-19 diagnosis, tweeted that he is "feeling really good" and said that Americans should not allow COVID-19 to "dominate your life," downplaying a virus that has killed over 210,000 people in the country. He said that he feels better than he did 20 years ago following his treatment at the military hospital in Bethesda, Md.
"I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good!" Trump tweeted. "Don't be afraid of Covid. Don't let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"
