President Donald Trump, who tested positive for COVID-19 and has been staying at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center since Friday, began Monday morning with a series of all-caps tweets touting his administration’s accomplishments and calling for people to vote.

Trump began Monday morning with a tweet, “‘I’m voting for Donald Trump. My father is a Union Worker and his 401K has tripled under President Trump.’ USA Voter. @foxandfriends Thank you, and remember that the Stock Market is getting ready to break its all time high. NEXT YEAR WILL BE THE BEST EVER. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!!!

Trump then began a series of all caps tweets, “IF YOU WANT A MASSIVE TAX INCREASE, THE BIGGEST IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY (AND ONE THAT WILL SHUT OUR ECONOMY AND JOBS DOWN), VOTE DEMOCRAT!!!

“STOCK MARKET HIGHS. VOTE!,” Trump tweeted.

“STRONGEST EVER MILITARY. VOTE!,” Trump’s tweets continued.

“SPACE FORCE. VOTE!,” another tweet reads.

“BIGGEST TAX CUT EVER, AND ANOTHER ONE COMING. VOTE!”

“BEST V.A. EVER. 91% APPROVAL RATING. VOTE!”

“BETTER & CHEAPER HEALTHCARE. VOTE!”

In total, Trump tweeted 13 all-caps messages on Monday morning.

The tweets come a day after Trump’s medical team, during a Sunday press briefing, reported Trump was doing well since testing positive for COVID-19. On Sunday, Dr. Brian Garibaldi, a member of Trump’s medical team, said Trump could be discharged from the hospital by as early as Monday.

Trump has been receiving the antiviral medication Remdesivir as a treatment for his COVID-19 case, and on Sunday Trump’s medical team revealed they had also placed Trump on Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid to help against inflammation.

Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis has forced his campaign to switch to virtual campaign events, but U.S. News and World Report reported the campaign will resume in-person events after the Vice-Presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
