President Trump spoke to the American people from the Walter Reed Medical Center on Saturday, where he is being treated for Covid-19.
The president appeared to be himself, if a bit more casual, and in good spirits. He had no trouble breathing or any of the things that CNN’s Acosta tried to sell everyone on all day.
He says he’ll be back soon. He said he’s appreciative of all the support and positive comments. “It’s a beautiful thing to see and I very much appreciate it, and I won’t forget it. I promise you that.”

Trump explained he had to be “out front” and couldn’t be locked up in the White House hiding out from the dangers of the pandemic indefinitely. “We have to confront problems,” he said.
The president said he’s doing well and that the First Lady is doing well, and offered high praise and gratitude for all of his doctors and staff during this time.
