Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Says He’s Doing ‘Very Well’ in Video Before Entering Walter Reed” – below is their description.
President Donald Trump arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday to be treated over the coming days for Covid-19, signaling growing concern about the severity of his illness. After leaving the White House by helicopter, Trump tweeted a video in which he said “I think I’m doing very well.” “We’re going to make sure that things work out,” he said. “The first lady is doing very well.” Trump walked to the presidential helicopter outside the White House without assistance, wearing a mask. He flashed a thumbs-up to reporters but made no remarks. Several top staffers gathered outside to see him off, wearing masks, and the Marine who saluted Trump as he boarded Marine One also wore a mask. White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows accompanied Trump abord the helicopter. Face coverings had not been commonplace at the White House before Friday. “Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the president will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days,” Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement. The trip capped a day of dizzying developments in Washington sparked by the president’s disclosure of his illness just a month before Election Day. As Trump was flown to the hospital, his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, was campaigning in the battleground state of Michigan, where he delivered a speech while wearing a face mask. McEnany didn’t say what tests or treatments Trump would receive. She described his symptoms as “mild,” but the plan to send him to the hospital deepened questions about his condition.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
