Donald Trump said he “thinks he’ll be back soon” in a four-minute video posted to Twitter on Saturday night.
I want to begin by thanking all of the incredible medical professionals, the doctors, the nurses, everybody, at Walter Reed Medical Center – I think it’s the finest in the world – for the incredible job they’ve been doing. I came here, wasn’t feeling so well, I feel much better now. We’re working hard to get me all the way back. I have to be back, because we still have to make America great again. We’ve done an awfully good job of that, but we still have steps to go and we have to finish that job. And I’ll be back, I think I’ll be back soon, and I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started and the way we’ve been doing and the kind of numbers that we’ve been doing. We’ve been so proud of it. But this was something that happened, and it’s happened to millions of people all over the world, and I’m fighting for them. Not just in the US, I’m fighting for them all over the world. We’re going to beat this coronavirus, or whatever you want to call it, and we’re going to beat it soundly.
So many things have happened. If you look at the therapeutics, which I’m taking right now, some of them, and others are coming out soon that are looking like – frankly, they’re miracles if you want to know the truth. They’re miracles. People criticize me when I say that, but we have things happening that look like they’re miracles coming down from God.
Donald Trump supporters have stood by outside Walter Reed medical center since the US president was admitted on Friday. It appears Gavin McInnes, founder of the neo-fascist group the Proud Boys, is among them.
CNN’s DJ Judd shared a photo on Saturday that appears to show McInnes, the Canadian-British far-right activist and Vice magazine co-founder who created the Proud Boys in September 2016.
It appears that Gavin McInnes, founder of the Proud Boys, is here at Walter Reed Medical Center— supporters on site starting chanting “Gavin! Gavin!” as he arrived. Trump’s shoutout to the group during the debate bolstered the Proud Boys: https://t.co/gGx7QdtCQM pic.twitter.com/vtamSSPQzR
