Coronavirus came as a 'blessing from God': Donald Trump
New Delhi : The United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared that getting diagnosed with coronavirus was a 'blessing from god' that exposed him to experimental treatments he vowed would be made free for the Americans.
In the video message, Donald Trump repeatedly mentioned how well he felt during the treatment. It is unclear that he has tested negative for the coronavirus or not.
"I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise," Trump said.
Donald Trump was heavily criticized for the slow response to coronavirus and discouraging his own staff from not wearing masks.
"I want to get for you what I got. And I'm going to make it free," Trump said.
His video message followed White House assurances that the 74-year-old president was back at the Oval Office on Wednesday, getting briefed about economic stimulus talks and Hurricane Delta, just two days after his discharge from Walter Reed military hospital.
Trump, who faces Democrat Joe Biden in the November election, has had no COVID-19 symptoms for the past 24 hours, his doctor Sean Conley said in a statement.
"He's now been fever-free for more than four days, symptom-free for over 24 hours, and has not needed, nor received, any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization," Conley said.
