Donald Trump Admitted To Walter Reed Hospital After Testing Positive for Coronavirus | 22 Words

Less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump tweeted that he and First Lady Melania Trump had both tested positive for COVID-19, he has been sent to Walter Reed Medical Center, the hospital that treats U.S. presidents.

The move was apparently out of an "abundance of caution."

According to The Washington Post, "Trump is struggling with a low-grade fever, a cough, and nasal congestion, among other symptoms." Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told the press, "President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, 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." As of now, the diagnosis has meant that Trump's campaigning is on pause and his events scheduled around the country have been cancelled.

Since the news broke last night that Donald and Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus...

People have had a lot to say. Of course, some have been digging up the past, while others have been sending him well wishes.

But there's actually a huge concern surrounding the president and his most recent diagnosis...

Because according to experts, his risk of death is now very high.

But Melania has now given us an update on the President's health and it has shocked everyone.

Now, it was only a few days ago that Trump took part in the first presidential debate.

Trump V Biden was never going to be a civilized affair, but the scenes that unfolded last night were nothing short of brutal.

Tensions between the candidates have been bubbling for some time now...

via: Getty

And, earlier this week, it seemed that their mutual feelings of resentment finally reached a boiling point.

And, in a moment many weren't expecting...

via: Getty

Biden suddenly lashed out at President Trump when he continued to speak over him.

While many have criticized Biden for his unprofessionalism...

Others have applauded the candidate, noting that he "said to Trump what they've been wanting to say for the last 4 years."

There were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.

For example...

The president was grilled on the newly surfaced allegations regarding his income tax.

Asked if it was true that he paid just $750 in income tax in 2016, as reported by The New York Times last week, Trump said, without hesitation: "I paid millions of dollars in taxes, of income tax." Biden used this opportunity to ask for evidence of these tax payments, adding that Trump "takes advantage of the tax code."

Trump was also asked to condemn white supremacist groups...

But instead chose to focus on the left. He said: "Sure I'm willing to do that, but almost everything I see is from the left-wing. I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace." And, when asked to give this group of people a name, he responded with "Proud Boys." Proud Boys, a neo-Nazi organization, appeared to use Trump's "stand back, stand by" call in a new logo posted on Telegram shortly after the debate.

The president did provide some good news with regards to a coronavirus vaccine, however.

When Biden pointed out that 200,000 Americans have died during the pandemic as a result of the President's "lack of plan", Trump retaliated by insisting that "millions would have died if Biden was in charge." He then added that the US is "weeks away" from a vaccine, and his administration had done a "great job."

Biden's son, Hunter, was then dragged back into the firing line.

The President brought up Biden's son, claiming the mayor of Moscow's wife gave him millions of dollars and raising questions over his links with Ukraine. He also mentioned Hunter's drug problems.

Clearly, his words about Hunter hit a nerve with Biden.

"His family we can talk about all night," Biden clapped back, adding that "it's hard to get any word in with this clown - excuse me, this person". The pair also clashed over Biden's now-deceased son, Beau, and his military service.

The insults continued to flow.

via: Getty

"Everything he's saying here is simply a lie, everybody knows he's a liar," Biden said during an exchange about healthcare. He also called Trump "the worst president this country has ever had."

And, of course, President Trump didn't take them quietly.

via: Getty

Not to be outdone, Trump got in plenty of digs as well, firing at his opponent: "There's nothing smart about you Joe. Forty-seven years, you've done nothing."

But, out of their many valiant attempts to slander one another...

via: Getty

There was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.

Now, not everyone was too impressed...

With many finding the moment to be "unprofessional" on Biden's part.

However, on the other hand...

People have found a whole new level of respect for Biden, and have even called his words the "highlight" of the evening.

Because, as you may have already heard...

via: Getty

Biden actually told the president to "shut up."

Yep, it's something many dream of doing one day.

The moment came during the first segment of the debate on the topic of the Supreme Court and people were living for it, to say the least.

But now, news has come in that could put Trump's future leadership in jeopardy.

via: Getty

It has been confirmed that the President and his First Lady have been infected with the virus that has already killed 208,000 Americans and devastated the economy.

Trump tweeted this last night...

And it is not yet known if the pair are suffering from any symptoms.

They are now self-isolating...

And floods of well-wishes for the President and First lady have been pouring in from all around the world.

But on the other hand, lots of angry and spiteful messages have been thrown at the pair following their diagnosis.

Even though the virus has a fairly steady survival rate...

via: Getty

Seventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.

The statistics speak for themselves.

via: Getty

According to CDC statistics, patients between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-four are 5 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than someone aged eighteen to twenty-nine.

This means that patients of Trump's age have ninety times greater chance of death than others...

via: Getty

Which isn't at all good news for the President.

But the First Lady's recent update on the situation has given people some hope.

via: Getty

A few hours ago, she tweeted from her official FLOTUS account telling us all that she and her husband are both in "good health."

Here's the official post:

She wrote: "As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together."

We wish the President and the First Lady a speedy recovery.
