BETHESDA, Maryland — Pro-US President Donald Trump demonstrators gathered in front of Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland to support the president, who had tested positive for COVID-19, Monday.
Trump returned to the White House in Washington DC later on Monday, after being discharged from the hospital, with his helicopter seen leaving the area. People were heard cheering, as the helicopter was flying above the crowd. The president addressed the nation, saying that people shouldn’t be “afraid” of the coronavirus, praising the hospital’s staff and assuring the citizens that the vaccines were coming “momentarily.”
Donald Trump was admitted into the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 on Friday. Multiple people around the US President have also tested positive for the disease, including first lady Melania Trump and former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway. On Monday White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also tested positive.
