The president of the United States tried to calm down the day after being hospitalized.
Amid worrisome rumors about his health after being hospitalized after being diagnosed positive for coronavirus, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, assured this Saturday that he feels “much better” and promised that he will return to his activities.
“I came here and I wasn’t feeling very well“admitted Trump, who is being treated at the Walter Reed military hospital, and immediately assured that he feels” much better now. “.
And he added, confident: “We are working hard so that he can return. I think I’ll be back soon and I want to finish the campaign (electoral) the way we started it. “
With the message, recorded in one of the rooms of the military hospital where he is staying, Trump tried to bring calm in the middle of versions that gave account of a delicate state of health.
The president was transferred on Friday afternoon to the hospital located on the outskirts of Washington to receive more intensive care from his medical team, which has supplied him with a cocktail of antibodies and is treating him with the antiviral Remdesivir.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Saturday that there were “very worrying” signs on Friday and that the next 48 hours will be “critical” to know how it will evolve the mandatary.
The president’s medical team announced at a press conference that Trump no longer has a fever, does not need oxygen and is evolving very well.
According to sources consulted by The New York Times, before being transferred to the hospital, Trump had to receive oxygen because his blood levels had dropped and he was having breathing difficulties.
“We are going to beat this coronavirus or whatever you want to call it“Trump claimed in the video.
He added: “I couldn’t stay in the White House locked up. Without going out, without even being able to go to the Oval Office.
The experimental therapies they are testing and the ones he is receiving are a “miracle that comes from God,” he said.
Trump also said that his wife, Melania Trump, is “handling it very well,” since she is also younger than him. “A little bit younger (younger),” added Trump, 74, 24 years older than his wife.
The president welcomed the displays of “love” from Americans and world leaders.
In the last hours it was the Chief of Staff of the White House, Mark Meadows, who set off the alarms when he pointed out that “the vital signs of the last 24 hours have been very worrying and the next 48 hours will be critical for his condition.”
These statements radically contradict the report of the medical team that treats Trump, which had appeared just a few minutes before to ensure that the president is evolving favorably.
