Donald Trump Says It’s a Blessing He Got COVID and Wants Free Treatment For Everyone | 22 Words

Donald Trump has given us yet another update and he's spoken about how COVID was a "blessing in disguise."

Keep on reading to hear it for yourselves...

It seems that the President is in high hopes!

And he has a lot of ideas for the future of this pandemic.

So much so...

That he has made some bold claims about how his diagnosis was a "blessing" and how he wants free treatment for everyone.

Will our president stick to his word?

Well, going by the last few weeks, that's looking very uncertain at the moment!

Now, the world was left shocked when Donald Trump and his first lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19...

And the surprising news came last week on the 2nd of October.

Trump tweeted this...

Though, at this time, he didn't give any further details regarding his and Melania's symptoms.

Immediately after his diagnosis, the President went into self-isolation...

And floods of well-wishes for him and the First lady began 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.

Will the president ever take this pandemic seriously?

But the main thing that has been concerning his followers is his age bracket.

Due to his age...

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

But the White House was quick to put many worries to rest.

Mark Meadows, the White House Chief of Staff, spoke at a live press conference today where he stated that he is "optimistic the President will have a very quick and speedy recovery."

Meadows explained that the White House's core staff have all been tested for the virus...

And said that the President was "energetic" and in "good spirits", adding that he was "staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people" Apparently, the first question Trump asked him after his diagnosis was "how's the economy doing?"

However, Meadows may have spoken too soon.

Because, shortly after his statement, it was reported that the president had been admitted to the hospital.

He was transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre.

This came after he received a cocktail of drugs as a "precautionary measure."

However, he gave off the impression that he was extremely unaffected by the virus.

Over the weekend, Trump gave a video update from the hospital, in which he praised the "incredible" Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and revealed that he had "met some of the soldiers" and was planning a "surprise" visit.

But then, shortly afterward, Trump came forward with a shock announcement.

Taking to Twitter, he revealed that he would be discharged from the hospital later on that day.

The President tweeted this:

"I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. 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!"

Now, telling a country to not be afraid of a virus that has killed 200,000 Americans is an extremely reckless thing to say...

And, of course, people were not happy with his choice of announcement.

It's vital for the president to stop downplaying the virus...

But now, he's released yet another video update and his extreme outlook hasn't changed... at all.

Taking to Twitter last night, Trump posted a video giving us all an update on how he's doing.

He spoke of how amazing the key-workers of our country have been and how, since he was treated by his doctors, he's feeling "unbelievable."

He said he's feeling great after being treated with Regeneron...

And he made an eye-opening promise to give the therapeutic to Americans who come down with COVID, and it's all going to be free.

And then...

He said: "I think this was a blessing from God, that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise."

People were alarmed by the president's words, to say the least...

And it has been branded as a "rambling, confusing mess."

It's all very unrealistic...

Can we really trust the president's promise for free COVID healthcare?

And it's important to remember...

Trump is still infected with COVID as far as we know... so why isn't he self-isolating!?

We hope the President will stick to his word!
