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.

Pro-Abortion Protesters Allegedly Take Abortion Pills Outside Supreme Court

Abortion Pills

In order to protest Mississippi’s ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, pro-abortion protestors allegedly took abortion pills – which are used to end pregnancies within the first 10 weeks – outside of the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

As reported by Fox News, “At least four women were seen taking pills as others cheered. The group Shout Your Abortion did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the video and protest.”

“Abortion pills forever,” the protesters repeatedly chanted in a view posted on Twitter by feminist activist Erin Matson Wednesday morning.

“Epic action from @ShoutYrAbortion — people took abortion pills outside the Supreme Court!” Matson captioned the video.

 

On Wednesday, protesters gathered outside the Supreme Court as the Justices prepared to sit for oral arguments in a case that could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade.
The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is over a 2018 law in Mississippi that bans most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The 1973 decision Roe v. Wade and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey forced states to allow women to get an abortion until the point of viability, which is considered to be around 20 to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Mississippi originally said in its petition to the Court that the case does not require them to overturn Roe v. Wade or Planned Parenthood v. Casey. In July, however, Mississippi shifted its position, writing, “Roe and Casey are egregiously wrong” and said the Court should overrule those decisions.
