Doctors at Walter Reed Medical Center announced at a Monday afternoon press conference that President Donald Trump will be leaving the military hospital and heading back to the White House in the evening.

While the head doctor, Dr. Sean Conley, said that his condition has been “improving,” he noted that the President “may not entirely be out of the woods yet.” He will be taken care of by the White House’s 24-hour medical unit.

Additionally, President Trump has received three doses of Remdesivir and will receive a fourth dose before he departs for the White House at 6:30 pm, Dr. Brian Garibaldi mentioned. He then added that: “We’ve made arrangements to deliver the fifth and final dose of his treatment course at the White House tomorrow evening.”

When asked about the president’s fever, Conley said that: “He has not been on any fever-reducing medication for 72 hours.”

It remains unknown how long Trump will be held up in the White House for, as the presidential election is less than 30 days away.

Dr. Conley also responded to reporters’ questions regarding whether Trump’s driveby of supporters camped outside the hospital on Sunday followed protocol, to which the doctor said that it was carried out safely and that no Secret Service agents were infected.

This follows President Trump announcing in a tweet prior to the 3 pm press conference this news, who also urged people to not be afraid of the virus, despite scientists estimating that a vaccine won’t be available until sometime next year.

“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M,” the president wrote. “Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

Dr. Conley was asked to respond to the President saying not to be afraid of Coronavirus, but he declined to answer.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
