Tweety McTreason indicated he was still COVID-19 positive on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday, sitting down for his first on-camera interview since he tested positive last week.
Speaking to Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel in a remote interview from the White House, Trump claimed he was “medication-free” as of Friday and feeling “really, really strong.”
“They wanted to keep me for observation,” Trump said about his hospitalization last Friday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. “You know, they wanted to be sure it was good. But … I was there for, I guess, three-and-a-half days. They wanted to keep me. I wanted to leave after the first day. I really felt I was in not bad shape. After the first day, I think I would have been in much worse shape had I not taken this [Regeneron] medication.”
Trump said he was tested for the coronavirus on Friday and did not know the exact results, but was “either the bottom of the scale or free” of the virus. He expected to be tested again on Saturday.
Trump suffered several coughing episodes during a televised phone call with Fox News personality Sean Hannity Thursday evening.
