Trump Finally Breaks His Twitter Silence With A Video Message

After a period of uncharacteristic silence on Twitter, President Trump has taken to social media to share a video updating Americans about his condition. The 18-second clip hit the internet shortly after the news broke that the President would be headed to Walter Reed Medical Center "out of an abundance of caution" according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany (via New York Post). The statement went on to say about Trump's status since contracting COVID-19, "The President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady." Melania Trump also tested positive for the virus.

In the new Twitter video, President Trump affirms how much he appreciates the support of the American people in light of his diagnosis. He also shares more about how he is feeling, a concern on the minds of many given his hospitalization.

President Trump says he is feeling pretty good

"I think I'm doing very well," Trump tells his 86.6 million followers in the short video, no doubt in an effort to inspire confidence among Americans who are concerned for his health. The President is seen wearing his trademark suit and a blue tie, and perhaps looks tired, but overall he does not appear to be visibly sick. What? Did you expect Trump to be wearing pajamas and lying on the sofa binging on Netflix?

Meanwhile, the President also said his wife is doing well. "I appreciate it. I will never forget it," he adds about the outpouring of support and well wishes he has received since testing positive.

Trump will be at Walter Reed for the next few days, reports CNN. He was last seen walking out of the White House on his own, wearing a mask, then boarding Marine One to go to the hospital.
