Just a few minutes ago on Saturday evening President Trump released a new video from Walter Reed Medical Center.
In the video President Trump explained that he was not feeling very well yesterday, but that he is feeling better today, and the next few days will tell a lot more about if his treatments are working or not.
The President thanked all of the medical workers for the “incredible job they’ve been doing.”
The President then touched on an interesting subject, about how he was given the option early on to do what Joe Biden was doing, and to not leave the White House and to not see guests, etc. . Here is the President’s direct quote.
“But I had no choice, because I just didn’t want to stay in the White House. I was given that alternative, stay in the White House, lock yourself in, don’t ever leave, don’t even go to the Oval Office, just stay upstairs and enjoy it. Don’t seat people, don’t talk to people, just be done with it.”
The President continued..
I can’t do that, I had to be out front. This is America, this is the United States, this is the greatest country in the world, this is the most powerful country in the world. I can’t be locked up in a room upstairs and totally safe, and just say ‘Hey whatever happens happens’ we have to confront problems, as a leader you have to confront problems. There’s never been a great leader that would have done that.”
These are the words of someone fit to lead America. No doubt about it.
The President even added a little humor in his speech.
“Melanie is really handling it very nicely, as you’ve probably read she’s slightly younger than me, just a little tiny bit.”
