President Donald Trump announced on Monday afternoon that he would be leaving Walter Reed hospital, where has been since Friday.

“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!” Trump said in a tweet.

On Sunday, Dr. Brian Garibaldi, a member of Trump’s medical team, had said Trump could be discharged from the hospital by as early as Monday.

“Today he feels well,” Garibaldi said. “He’s been up and around. Our plan for today is to have him eat and drink and be up out of bed as much as possible to be mobile, and if he continues to look and feel as well as he does today, our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as tomorrow, to the White House where he can continue his treatment course.”
