President Donald Trump’s doctor said the president had a “restful first night at home” after he returned to the White House on Monday, days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
White House physician Dr. Sean P. Conley said, “Today he reports no symptoms” from the virus.
The president’s vital signs and his physical examination remain stable, and his “ambulatory oxygen saturation level” is 95 to 97 percent.
“Overall, he continues to do extremely well,” Conley said in a statement released by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. “I will provide updates as we know more.”
After he arrived at the White House from Marine One on Monday, the president walked out onto the Truman Balcony, removed his mask, and saluted military officers. Critics said the president was being irresponsible.
However, a spokesperson said Trump was projecting strength.
“At times like this, in these moments, it is highly important for the commander in chief to express confidence to our domestic population, and it is very important, to our allies and adversaries,” White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah told Fox News on Tuesday, adding that Trump is “projecting an image of strength.”
Farah said that Americans “needed to see their president strong and leading” during the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.
