Trump takes off mask after landing
Upon arrival, Trump went down into the garden and climbed the stairs to the residence alone. He was wearing a mask at the time of landing. However, he removed the accessory and put it in his pocket moments after the helicopter left.
Earlier, Trump warned voters and supporters via social media that he would leave the hospital. In a post on his official Twitter account, he asked Americans not to be afraid of Covid-19. According to the American university Johns Hopkins, the United States has more than 7.4 million cases of Covid-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 210,000 Americans have died infected with the coronavirus
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!
