President Donald Trump takes off his facemask as he arrives at the White House upon his return from Walter Reed Medical Center, where he underwent treatment for Covid-19, in Washington, DC, on October 5, 2020.
"I most of all appreciate what's been said by the American people— by almost a bipartisan consensus of American people," President Trump said yesterday in a video from the hospital. "It's a beautiful thing to see. And I very much appreciate it, and I won't forget it, I promise you that."
"So it’s been a very interesting journey. I learned a lot about COVID. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the ‘let’s read the book’ school. And I get it. And I understand it. And it’s a very interesting thing. And I’m going to be letting you know about it. In the meantime, we love the USA, and we love what’s happening. Thank you.”
