President Trump’s prognosis is undoubtedly the number one story in the world on Sunday afternoon, and the Commander in Chief himself isn’t looking to leave anything up to chance.
Over the course of the last few day, Trump has done his damnedest to convey an image of strength to the world. He’s been tweeting, posing for photos, and speaking on camera throughout the duration of his stay, much to the chagrin of his supporters and the nation at large.
On Sunday, the President posted a somewhat cryptic video message on Twitter, promising of a great surprise.

Then, just moments later, the President took a lap around Walter Reed Medical Center in his motorcade, waving to supporters.

Trump driving around in motorcade after posting video thanking his supporters outside of Walter Reed. I don’t know how anyone can still think he has Covid. A well choreographed ruse with many people involved.
