Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to announce that he would be leaving Walter Reed Medical Center later this evening. In his tweet, Trump suggested that COVID-19 should not be taken seriously.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M.,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “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!”

Trump did receive backlash over his remarks after forgetting that over 210,000 people have died from the virus in the United States.

I dont believe he had Covid. This is a political stunt. Who gets experimental treatments that have not been approved and then is out in 3 days. This does not add up. Others predicted this was all a sham. I fear they were right

Glad you are well. But, how selfish and self-centered to send a message to the American people not to worry about COVID. You had access to 24/7 care, the best doctors and treatments early on… what most of us can only hope to receive once we become severely ill.

No Sir, we'd rather it dominates our lives than it does our deaths. pic.twitter.com/W1i8GZC9cD

It is officially a cult.
Don't be afraid to die, " death is "just stepping over into another plane" it's "a friend." – Jim Jones on his last day – November 18, 1978

Tell that to the families of the 210,000 people who have died from it.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could get the same care you have received without having to pay a single dime? You love universal health care when it's benefiting you, don't you?
