Trump urges Americans to ‘get out’ after return from hospital

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday appealed Americans to “get out there” and not be afraid of coronavirus after he returned to the White House following four days of treatment for COVID-19 in a U.S. military hospital where he was treated for COVID-19.

Trump, who went into hospital on Friday, was discharged on Monday evening from Walter Reed Medical Center near Washington, making the short helicopter ride to the White House where he is to continue his treatment.

Wearing a white surgical mask, Trump gave a thumbs-up and waved at reporters as he walked to the executive mansion from the helicopter from the Walter Reed Medical Center outside Washington.

He removed his mask, and posed for pictures, at times giving a thumbs-up or a salute.

Trump announced October 2 that he and his wife, Melania, had tested positive for COVID-19 via his Twitter account.
