In a video the president posted to Twitter, he said is getting “great reports from the hospital” and that he’s been able to meet the soldiers and first responders at Walter Reed. The video appeared to have him standing up by his own power.

Trump continued to say that he will make a surprise to some of the “great patriots” who have been on the street. These supporters were crowded outside the hospital with signs and Trump flags waving to send the president their well wishes.

In return, Trump’s motorcade drove past supporters. It appears he was visible in the back of a car waving. It’s unclear who was driving and what if any precautions were taken to prevent further spread of the virus.
