Washington: US President Donald Trump may return to the White House as early as Monday, and his condition is said by doctors that he is “improving.”
Trump’s condition is being treated for COVID-19 in a military hospital, and the doctor who led his treatment said Sunday that they are seeing signs of improvement.
The term came about the second day after a series of conflicting information about Trump’s condition in the White House caused widespread confusion about his health.
“The patient continues to improve. He has remained without fever since Friday morning, his vital signs are stable,” Dr. Sean Dooley told reporters at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where Trump has been receiving treatment since Friday.
Trump released a four-minute videotape on Saturday, in which he said the “real test” of his condition will take place in the next few days.
“Over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test, so we’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days,” Trump said into the camera, looking tired and wearing a jacket and open-necked shirt.
Trump’s illness overthrew the campaign before the November presidential election and focused on the president’s handling of the epidemic. The Republican president lags behind Democratic rival Joe Biden in the polls.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll published on Sunday found that Biden leads Trump by 10 points nationwide, which is slightly wider than the past two months. About 65% of Americans said that Trump might not be infected if he took the virus more seriously-half of the registered Republicans surveyed supported this. Approximately 55% said they don’t think Trump has been telling the truth about the virus.
Trump’s campaign pledge that if Trump fails to perform his duties, Vice President Mike Pence will be the president, and there will be a “radical” campaign schedule this week. Trump’s three older children It will be so.
“We can’t stay in our basement or shut down the economy indefinitely. We have to take it head-on,” Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.
Trump has repeatedly downplayed the threat of this pandemic, even though it has killed more than 208,000 Americans and hit the US economy.
Last Saturday, government officials made a different assessment of Trump’s health, which made the president’s condition remain unclear since he tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday night.
A team of White House doctors said Saturday morning that Trump’s condition is improving and he is already talking about returning to the White House.
Within a few minutes, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows (Mark Meadows) was less optimistic about reporters. He said: “The president’s vitality in the past 24 hours is very worrying. The next 48 hours It is vital to his care. We still don’t have a clear path for a full recovery.”
Meadows’ initial comments were made without disclosing his identity. A few hours later, he changed his tone and told Reuters that Trump did a “very good job” and the doctor was very satisfied with his vital signs.
Meadows did not clarify the difference in his comments. A Trump adviser, who asked not to be named, said the president was not happy to learn of Meadows’ initial remarks.
However, in an interview with Fox News that aired on Saturday night, Meadows revealed that Trump’s condition on Friday was far worse than what officials had publicly said. Go to the hospital after seeing him have a fever and the oxygen level in his blood drops rapidly.
White House doctor Sean Conley told reporters outside the hospital on Saturday that Trump did not have breathing difficulties and did not receive oxygen at Walter Reed.
He declined to give a timetable for Trump’s possible release from the hospital, and later had to issue a statement saying that he had misunderstood after what seemed to suggest that Trump was diagnosed as early as Wednesday.
In a statement on Saturday evening, Conley said the president was “not yet out of the woods” but his team remained cautiously optimistic.
