White House sows confusion about Trump's condition

President Donald Trump said in a video on Twitter Saturday evening that he's "starting to feel good." Those messages were among the latest in a string of contradictory and often misleading information about Trump's diagnosis with Covid-19 and his condition since being transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Friday evening.

Saturday morning, the President's physician, Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley, had offered an upbeat assessment of the President's condition stating that he was feeling well, that he had been "fever-free" for 24 hours and that his symptoms -- which included an "extremely mild cough," nasal congestion and fatigue -- "are resolving and improving." Conley was evasive about when and if Trump had received supplemental oxygen, saying, "He is not on oxygen." "I just want to tell you that I'm starting to feel good," Trump said. "You don't know over the next period of a few days, I guess that's the real test. So, we'll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days."
He also thanked world leaders and Americans for their support, which have been roundly delivered from both sides of the aisle.
