President Donald Trump addressed the nation Saturday in a video statement from his hospital suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center a day after being admitted for symptoms associated with his diagnosis of COVID-19.
The president reassured the nation he was feeling better. He also noted that he would return back to the campaign trail “soon.” He said Walter Reed medical center is “the finest in the world’ noting that the doctors and the nurses have been exceptional.
“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well. I feel much better now,” said Trump, who appeared to be feeling much better.
“We’re working hard to get me all the way back,” he said, noting the excellence of the hospital and staff. “I have to be back because we still…have to make America great again. We’ve done an awfully good job of that, but we still have steps to go. We have to finish that job.”
“I’ll be back. I think I’ll be back soon,” he added. “And I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started. And the way we’ve been doing, the kind of numbers we’ve been doing, we’ve been so proud of it. But this was something that happened, and it’s happened to millions of people all over the world.”
The president went on to talk about the great strides being made to combat the novel coronavirus that has taken the lives of many people worldwide.
“So many things have happened,” he said. “If you look at the therapeutics, which I’m taking right now, some of them, and others are coming out soon that are looking like, frankly, they’re miracles. If you want to know the truth: They’re miracles. People criticize me when I say that, but we have things happening that look like they’re miracles coming down from God.”
“So I just want to tell you that I’m starting to feel good,” he added. “You don’t know, over the period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test.”

Philly Mayor says only police officers should be allowed to own guns like ‘in Canada’
Two Philadelphia police officers were shot near a Fourth of July event on Monday evening, leaving the mayor supporting demolishing the Second Amendment. In a grandstanding speech just outside the hospital where the two police officers were being treated for gunshot injuries, Mayor Jim Kenney spoke about his concern…for himself.
“I’m concerned every single day” said Kenney. “I’ll be happy when I’m not the mayor” he added so that he does not have to deal with gun violence. He also told the group of reporters that only police officers should be allowed to own guns.
In addition to the Second Amendment, Kenney took the opportunity to knock the Supreme Court of the United States as well. “It was a chilled back day, beautiful weather. But we live in America where we have the Second Amendment and we have the Supreme Court of the United States telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want,” he said.
Rather, the mayor suggests we take after our northern neighbors in Canada. “I was in Canada two weeks ago and never thought about a gun,” he said. “The only people I knew who had guns in Canada were police officers.”
“That’s the way it should be here,” Kenney stated, so that he can enjoy events. “I don’t enjoy the Fourth of July…I didn’t enjoy the Democratic National Convention. I didn’t enjoy the NFL draft. I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time.”
“Until Americans decide that they want to give up the guns and give up the opportunity to get guns, we’re going to have this problem,” he told reporters. He then suggested he would unilaterally strip citizens of the right to own firearms — if he had the authority to do so.
“If I had the ability to take care of guns, I would,” he said. “But the legislature won’t let us. Congress won’t let us. The governor does the best he can [and] the attorney general does the best he can, but this is a gun country.”
“It’s crazy,” Kenney added. “We’re the most armed country in world history and we’re one of the least safest (sic).”
