Donald Trump Says He Is ‘Medication Free’ After Coronavirus Treatments

Donald Trump Says He Is ‘Medication Free’ After Coronavirus Treatments

President Donald Trump said Friday that he was “medication-free” after being treated for the coronavirus for the past week.

“Right now I’m medication free – not taking any medications as of probably eight hours,” Trump said. “I ammedication free, which frankly makes me feel good. I don’t like medication.”

The president spoke about his experience with the coronavirus in an interview with Fox News contributor Dr. Mark Seigel on Friday that was aired on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

The president said he currently felt “really good” and “really, really strong” after fighting the virus for over a week.

He said that he was feeling weakness before he went to Walter Reed Military hospital on Friday after testing positive for the virus on Thursday.

Trump said that the doctors discovered some congestion in his lungs and that he was tired and lacked his customary energy.

“I just think that it was just, you were tired. It was just getting to you from the standpoint, you didn’t have the same energy level,” he said. “My life is based a little bit on energy, and you didn’t have it.”

He said that the scans of his lungs initially had some congestion but that they had improved.

Trump again praised the antibody cocktail transfusion developed by Regeneron as helping him improve rapidly at the hospital.

“I just felt very good,” he said.

He said that he wanted the government to get the same treatment sent out to everybody and free of cost.

The president said that he had been tested again for the virus on Friday.

“I have been retested and I haven’t even found out numbers or anything yet, but I’ve been retested, and I know that I’m at either the bottom of the scale or free,” he said.

Trump also defended his decision to take a drive-by in an armored SUV to acknowledge a crowd of supporters outside the hospital who gathered to show their support.

“I love the people of this country, and I thought it would have been very disrespectful if I was there three and a half days … if I didn’t at least go out and give them a little wave,” he said.

He said that the Secret Service said that they had “no problem” with the trip, and noted that they were “very, very protected.”

“They’ve been with me for a long time and they understand,” Trump said.

When asked whether he would donate his plasma after recovering from the virus, Trump replied, “I will. Nobody’s asked me that question actually, but I will.”

He also said that he was not aware of where he likely contracted the virus but acknowledged that he had attended some “big events” before getting the virus.

“They had some big events at the White House and perhaps there,” he said. “I don’t really know.. Nobody really knows for sure.”

Donald Trump Returns to the White House: Don’t Let Coronavirus Dominate You

Donald Trump Returns to the White House: Don’t Let Coronavirus Dominate You

President Donald Trump urged Americans to stop being afraid of the coronavirus after he returned to the White House from receiving treatment for the virus.

“I learned so much about coronavirus and one thing that’s for certain: don’t let it dominate you, don’t be afraid of it,” Trump said. “You’re going to beat it.”

The president filmed and released a new video on Monday as soon as he returned to the White House after receiving treatment at Walter Reed Military Hospital for the coronavirus.

The video appeared to be filmed on the South Portico of the White House after the president removed his mask.

The president noted that the United State had the best therapeutics and medicines to treat the virus, and thanked the staff and doctors at Walter Reed Military hospital for their excellent care.

He admitted that he “didn’t feel so good” until he went to the hospital on Friday, and now felt “great.”

“Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives, don’t let that happen,” Trump said. “We have the greatest country in the world.”

He indicated that he had no regrets about traveling around the country and meeting people in person, putting himself at risk and ultimately contracting the virus.

“I stood out front. I led. Nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did,” he said. “I know there’s a risk. There’s a danger, but that’s ok, and now I’m better. And maybe I’m immune. I don’t know.”

“Don’t let it dominate your lives. Get out there, be careful, we have the best medicines in the world … and the vaccines are coming momentarily,” Trump concluded.

Earlier Monday, President Trump also urged Americans not to be afraid of the coronavirus.

“Don’t be afraid of Covid,” he said. “Don’t let it dominate your life.”

Prior to recording the video, President Trump exited Marine One, walked up the steps of the South Portico, turned, and removed his mask as he stood and saluted Marine One as it left the White House.

The White House also released a highlight video of the president’s return.

CNN’s Brian Stelter Claims Trump ‘Recommends Getting Sick’ In Latest Health Update

CNN’s Brian Stelter Claims Trump ‘Recommends Getting Sick’ In Latest Health Update

After President Donald Trump tweeted that he would be released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday, CNN’s Brian Stelter quickly jumped to interpreting Trump’s message of encouragement as saying the president “recommends getting sick.”

“The president here is almost saying that he recommends getting sick by saying, ‘I feel better than I did 20 years ago.’ He’s acting like he’s drinking from the fountain of youth. And thanks to COVID he feels better,” Stelter said on live TV Monday afternoon. “This is crazy. It’s like he’s back to denying COVID while he still has the disease.”

Trump tweeted that American should not to be afraid of COVID and claiming, “I feel better than I did 20 years ago.”

“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! 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. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” he tweeted.

Stelter accused the president of using his release from the hospital as an opportunity for extensive press coverage.

“By the way, note the timing 6:30 pm, the nightly newscasts, they’re not as big as they used to be but they still have a big audience. I think he wants that return shot with Marine One, the same way we had on Friday night on the same time when he left.

He also condemned Trump for going back to the White House where Melania is quarantining, claiming that it was irresponsible and “worst practice.”

“He’s going home to the first lady who’s actually the more responsible one. She’s the one showing leadership. She’s being a role model by isolating herself in the White House. The president is the one showing worst practices, and the first lady is showing best practices,” Stelter continued.

Stelter joins the ranks of other mainstream media reporters panicking and criticizing the way Trump has handled the COVID-19 crisis as well as his own diagnosis.

‘Don’t Be Afraid Of COVID’: Trump Says He’ll Be Released From Walter Reed Monday Night

‘Don’t Be Afraid Of COVID’: Trump Says He’ll Be Released From Walter Reed Monday Night

President Donald Trump announced he will be released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland Monday at 6:30 p.m.

In his announcement via Twitter, Trump encouraged Americans not to let the virus “dominate your life.”

“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! 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. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” he tweeted. 

White House Physician Dr. Sean Conley, called Trump a “phenomenal patient” and explained that his condition improved enough to meet the qualifications for release from the hospital. Conley noted Trump’s oxygen levels are normal and it has been more than 72 hours since his last fever.

“Though he may not be entirely out of the woods yet, our team and I agree that all his evaluations, and more importantly, his clinical status support his return home where he’ll be surrounded by world-class medical care 24/7,” Conley said. “He’s back.”

Trump was first hospitalized on Friday following his and First Lady Melania Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis on Thursday night. Since the announcement of his positive test, mainstream media reporters and Democrats began peddling conspiracy theories about Trump’s contraction of the virus, with some even wishing for his death.

Photos released by the White House show Trump working from an office space in the hospital while he was being treated. The president also tweeted multiple videos reassuring the public that he was doing well and praising the doctors at Walter Reed for handling his treatment.

On Sunday, Trump made a quick, masked trip outside of the hospital in a vehicle to wave at supporters gathered outside of the medical facility.

The media attacked Trump for this decision, claiming he risked the lives of Secret Service members and others by potentially exposing them to the virus. The president responded by pointing out the media’s hypocrisy in the coverage of the event.

“It is reported that the Media is upset because I got into a secure vehicle to say thank you to the many fans and supporters who were standing outside of the hospital for many hours, and even days, to pay their respect to their President. If I didn’t do it, Media would say RUDE!!!” he wrote.

According to Conley, the President has “remained fever free and off of supplemental oxygen” as of Sunday and had received treatments of Remdesivir “without complication.”

Since Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis, other White House officials and politicians have tested positive including Kayleigh McEnany, Sens. Mike Lee, Thom Tillis, and Ron Johnson, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
