MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — President Donald Trump released a video Saturday saying he’s beginning to feel better and thinks he’ll “be back soon.”
After testing positive for COVID-19 on Friday, Trump was admitted into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.
In the four-minute video, Trump expressed he “wasn’t feeling so well” when he checked into the hospital, but is “feeling much better now.”

He says the doctors are working hard to get him back to the White House, and over the next few days, he says he’ll know more about his health update.
Trump also says the First Lady Melania Trump is “doing well” and “handling it nicely.”
Later in the video, Trump expressed his gratitude for the “outpouring of love” he has received since his diagnosis.
Physician to the President Sean P. Conley issued a statement Saturday on Trump’s condition update:
“President Trump continues to do well having made substantial progress since diagnosis. This evening he completed his second dose of Remdesivir without complication. He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98% all day. He spent most of the afternoon conducting business and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty. While not yet out of the woods, the team remains cautiously optimistic. The plan for tomorrow is to continue observation in between doses of Remdesivir, closely monitoring his clinical status while fully supporting his conduct of Presidential duties.”
