President Donald Trump was admitted at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday afternoon.

The action was taken at the recommendation of the President’s physician, Sean P. Conley.

Conley says the President was administered a dose of the antiviral drug Remdesivir and is “resting comfortably” and “doing very well.”

“This afternoon, in consultation with specialists from Walter Reed and Johns Hopkins University, I recommended movement of the President up to Walter Reed … for further monitoring,” Conley wrote in a statement released via White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

“This evening, I am happy to report that the President is doing very well. He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen, but in consultation with specialists, we have elected to initiate Remdesivir therapy. He has completed his first dose and is resting comfortably,” Conley added.

The reports of Trump “doing very well” at Walter Reed contradict reports from wannabe reporter Jim Acosta, of CNN, who apparently has another source on the President’s condition.

Acosta’s got Trump feeling much worse than being reported by doctors. Isn’t his network the one insisting everyone “trust the doctors” and “trust public health officials”?

He also says Trump’s having trouble breathing:

A few hours later, after getting dragged on Twitter for his questionable unconfirmed reporting, Acosta appears to walk back some of what he’d said earlier in the day Friday:

Trump Tweets on Friday

The President’s Twitter activity was noticeably minimal on Friday, the same day he informed the world in a tweet that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19.

Trump posted this short video from the White House before departing for Walter Reed:

At around 11:30 p.m., the President tweeted a short message presumably from inside Walter Reed hospital: “Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”
