Dr. Sean Conley, White House physician, gives an update on the president's condition. Trump says he is leaving the hospital Monday evening.
Trump's doctor, Navy Commander Sean Conley, said if the president continued to look and feel well, "our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as (Monday) to the White House, where he can continue his treatment course." At a news conference Sunday, physicians said the president had begun a course of the steroid dexamethasone on Saturday following a drop in his oxygen levels. Claiming progress in his personal fight against COVID-19, Trump ventured outside in an SUV on Sunday and waved at supporters who gathered at the hospital before then returning to the facility. Critics called the move "reckless" and said Trump endangered the Secret Service members riding in the vehicle with him. Dr. James P. Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed, tweeted that everybody in the vehicle with Trump should be quarantined for 14 days.
