Still sick with the coronavirus, Donald Trump left the hospital on Monday. Without wasting time, on his return to the White House he ostensibly removed his mask and called on the Americans to “come out” with caution, after having promised to resume his electoral campaign soon.
In a highly orchestrated staging, the President of the United States got off the helicopter that brought him from the Walter Reed Military Medical Center, crossed the lawn, waving to the cameras waiting for him before climbing the steps towards the balcony of his residence.
There, still looking tense, he adjusted his jacket, removed his mask and threw his thumbs up. A gesture of defiance for a leader who for months displayed his disdain for those who cover their faces to protect themselves from Covid-19.
“I was on the front line”
A sign of the importance that Donald Trump wanted to give to this moment when the electoral campaign was shaken by his illness and that he is lagging behind in the polls, his Twitter account published two videos, one of which, almost Hollywood, shows her arrival at the White House against a background of pompous music.
“Don’t let him dominate you. Do not be afraid, you will beat him, we have the best medical equipment, ”said the American president of the Covid-19, while his country, the most bereaved in the world, deplores more than 210,000 deaths due to this disease.
“Get out, be careful,” even urged the one who is accused of having minimized the pandemic and whose management is criticized from all sides.
“We’re going to get back to work”, “as a leader I had to do it, I knew there was a danger, but I had to do it. I was on the front line, ”he said in the second video. “And now I’m better, I might even be immune, I don’t know,” he added.
Shortly before, and three days after being admitted there on Friday following his positive Covid-19 test, he had left the hospital on foot through a large golden door, to the cheers of dozens of his supporters.
The president-candidate, again very active on Twitter, is increasingly impatient to give at least the image of a candidate mobilized by his campaign less than a month before the November 3 election, against Democrat Joe Biden.
“I will be returning to the field soon for my campaign !!! “, He warned on Twitter.
“World class 24 hour medical care”
“He’s back”, also agreed his doctor Sean Conley, “cautiously optimistic”. The medical team clearly emphasized that leaving the hospital was not synonymous with a return to normalcy.
“He may not be completely out of the woods yet,” and he will enjoy “world-class 24-hour medical care as President,” Dr Conley said at a press conference. He said doctors would not be fully relieved for a week.
More importantly, he explained that Donald Trump could not return to the field until he was no longer contagious – hinting that he still was. He mentioned an average delay of ten days, but without specifying exactly from when.
This therefore seems to deprive him again for a time of travel in the key States to try to catch up.
Opposite, Joe Biden, 77, who has maintained – or even increased – his lead in voting intentions after last week’s confused debate against Donald Trump, continues his campaign at his own pace. On Monday, he opposed the very heavy toll of the pandemic in the United States to the reassuring words of Donald Trump.
Biden: “Support the wearing of the mask”
“I saw a tweet he made, they showed it to me, he said Don’t let the Covid control your lives. Go tell that to the 205,000 families who have lost someone, ”said the visibly angry former US vice-president from Florida, one of the key states in this election.
“Now that he has time to tweet campaign messages, I’m going to ask him this: listen to the scientists, support the wearing of the mask,” he had said previously.
In the immediate future, Donald Trump should therefore be confined to the White House, which increasingly looks like a virulent outbreak of the coronavirus.
After the president, his wife Melania, his close advisor Hope Hicks and several other members of his team, it is Kayleigh McEnany, spokesman for Donald Trump, who announced Monday that he had tested positive for Covid-19.
This announcement, after three days of cacophonous communication on the state of health of the president of the world’s leading power, further reinforces the image of an executive who has not taken the full measure of the epidemic.
