A few minutes ago, President Trump made the following statement:

"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!"

The press briefing is expected to take place at 3 pm. The microphones have been set up and the garbage bag was removed.
