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.
