UPDATE: President Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center the evening of Oct. 5 and returned to the White House. Biden’s stopped asking to measure the blinds.
Washington, D.C. – White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows confirmed on Friday morning President Donald Trump was experiencing mild symptoms from the coronavirus after his positive test announced earlier.
“The president does have mild symptoms,” Meadows said Oct. 2 to reporters outside the White House.
According to Breitbart News, Meadows said that the White House continued to follow safety protocols and that the president was working from the residence of the building,
“The American people can rest assured that we have a president that is not only on the job, will remain on the job and I’m optimistic that he will have a very quick and speedy recovery,” Meadows said.
The Chief of Staff said that doctors were monitoring the president’s health and that they would provide an update later in the day.
“I think the great thing about this president is not only is he staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people,” he said. “His first question to me was how is the economy doing, how are the stimulus talks going on Capitol Hill.”
On Twitter, First Lady Melania Trump also revealed that she was experiencing mild symptoms of the virus.
The president had been scheduled to visit Tucson and Flagstaff, Arizona, on Oct. 5 and Oct. 6, respectively. There is no official word on whether surrogates will continue the president’s campaign for re-election in his absence.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post was evidently rooting for Trump’s death. In an opinion tweet, since deleted, the Wapo said “Imagine what it will be like to never have to think about Trump again.”
