President Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and returned to the White House on Monday evening to continue his fight against the novel coronavirus, after his medical team warned that he “may not entirely be out of the woods yet.”
Dressed in a navy suit and tie and wearing a face mask, Trump walked out of Walter Reed on his own. Upon walking out the doors of the hospital, he made a low fist pump and gave a thumbs up to the press as he got into a black SUV to head to Marine One.
The president teased his return to the White House Monday afternoon, saying he is "feeling really good!"
"Don’t be afraid of Covid," the president tweeted. "Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge."
He added: "I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"
The 2020 vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic challenger Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., is set to take place this Wednesday, Oct. 7, at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
The moderator for the sole contest between the two candidates will be USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.
"The debates are a crucial part of making our democracy work, and I am honored to participate," Page said in a statement in USA Today.
