President Donald Trump wanted to surprise fans as he was leaving the hospital by tearing his shirt open to reveal a Superman T-shirt in a bizarre show of strength following his coronavirus diagnosis.
The U.S. President called several times to propose the idea during his stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last week, where he was battling Covid-19.
He had the idea of appearing physically weak to the crowd before ripping open his button-down to reveal the Superman top New York Times.
It is reported that at the White House on Saturday, Trump noticed attendees wearing teal shirts, then pointed at the crowd and said, “I want to wear one of them instead of a white shirt.”
The move was supposedly intended as a symbol of strength, represented by the iconic Superman logo, but Trump ultimately didn’t go through the stunt.
Trump announced that he and his wife Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19 in an early morning tweet on October 2. It did so after the US president downplayed the risks of the virus for months.
The next night it was him flown to the WRNMMC, near Washington DC andtreated with steroids, antibiotics, and cutting edge therapies – many of which are not available to ordinary Americans.
He was also given an experimental antibody cocktail during his treatment with Covid-19.
Unnamed Trump advisors and other employees described him as “very tired, very tired and difficult to breathe,” reports CNN during his three-day hospital stay. While others claim the reports are exaggerated.
The president checked out of the WRNMMC on Monday and performed an elaborate arrival at the White House with no Superman tea.
On his reckless departure, he said the virus was nothing to fear before posing for a maskless photo on the White House balcony.
The Republican leader struggled again because he had removed his mask when he returned to the president’s residence and brought the deadly disease to light.
And he said he was aware of the risks of returning to the White House with the contagious and fatal disease, but said, “That’s fine.”
Trump said, “I’ve just left Walter Reed Medical Center and it’s very special.
“The doctors, the nurses, the first responders. And I’ve learned so much about the coronavirus.
“And one thing is certain. Don’t let yourself be dominated. Don’t be afraid of it.
“” You will hit it. We have the best medical equipment. We have the best medicines. All of them have evolved recently. “
Many of the drugs given to the President are currently not publicly available.
He added, “You’re going to hit it. I left, I didn’t feel good. And two days ago I could have left two days ago. I felt great, like better than in a long time.
“I said recently, better than 20 years ago.
“Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your life. Don’t let that happen.
“We’re the largest country in the world. We’re going back. We’re going back to work. We’ll be in front.”
The day before he left, Trump was again criticized for leaving the hospital for a short trip in the president’s SUV as he waved to supporters and posed for a photo.
Since then, he has planned to appear at several rallies ahead of the November 3rd US presidential election.
President Trump suggested “leaving” the hospital because he is a leader.
He said, “As a leader, I had to do this. I know there is a danger, but I had to do it.
“I was in front. I was leading. No one who is a leader would not do what I did.
“I know there is a risk. There is a danger. But that’s fine. And now I’m better.”
