President Donald Trump returned to the White House on Marine One Monday evening, marking the end of a three-day hospital stay at Walter Reed Military Medical Center to treat his COVID-19 infection.
After returning, Trump removed his mask, a point that left health experts bewildered since has not yet been determined if the President is still infectious. In a video shared on Twitter afterwards, Trump reiterated a message from earlier in the day.
Trump announced he would be leaving Walter Reed on Twitter, while also spreading what some experts say is a dangerous public health message.
“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,” Trump said.
In the video, later, Trump reiterated the line, “don’t let it dominate your lives. Get out there. Be careful. The vaccines are coming, momentarily.”
