bdmetronews Desk ॥ President Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday evening to return to the White House, three days after being admitted to the hospital for treatment of complications from COVID-19.
“I learned so much about coronavirus,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter that he filmed at the White House upon his arrival, “And one thing that’s for certain: don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it.”
As of Monday night, at least 210,117 Americans have been killed by COVID-19, many of whom did not receive near the same level of medical care that the president received at Walter Reed.
“Don’t let it dominate you,” Trump said in the video. “Don’t let it take over your lives.”
Trump went on to praise himself, saying “I stood out front, I led,” in reference his stay in the hospital, adding, “nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did.”
“Now I’m better, and maybe I’m immune, I don’t know,” Trump boasted though he has not yet cleared himself of the virus and likely remains infectious.
