Donald Trump addresses Americans at the hospital


reOnald Trump went through a “very worrying” period on Friday and faces two “critical” days in his fight against Covid-19 in a military hospital, his chief of staff said on Saturday – contrary to a rosier assessment moments earlier by Trump’s medics, who were careful not to reveal that the president received supplemental oxygen in the White House prior to his hospitalization.Mr Trump offered his own assessment on Saturday night in a video from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, saying he was starting to feel better and hoped to “be back soon.”

Hours earlier, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told reporters outside the hospital: “We are still not on the road to full recovery. ”

The changing, and at times conflicting, accounts created a credibility crisis for the White House at a crucial time, with the president’s health and the nation’s leadership at stake.

With Mr Trump scheduled to remain hospitalized for several more days and the impending presidential election, his condition is being watched with anxiety by the Americans.

Moreover, the health of the president is a national security issue of paramount importance not only to the functions of the United States government, but also to countries around the world – friends and others.
