Donald Trump Shares Health Update with Rudy Giuliani, Says He’s ‘Going to Beat’ Coronavirus

Donald Trump is feeling healthy, according to pal Rudy Giuliani.

The President called the former Mayor of New York City from the hospital on Saturday afternoon (October 3) to share an update on how he’s doing while battling the coronavirus.

“If you can judge by the way he speaks, he sounded like vintage Donald Trump,” Giuliani told the New York Post, before sharing the statement Trump dictated to him.

“I feel I could get out of here right now. But they’re telling me there can always be a backstep with this disease. But I feel I could go out and do a rally,” Trump told Giuliani.

“I am the president of the United States. I can’t lock myself in a room. … I had to confront [the virus] so the American people stopped being afraid of it so we could deal with it responsibly, he continued. “We have made tremendous progress on treating this disease. Fatality rates are very low compared to [the beginning].”

“I’m going to beat this,” Trump said. “Then I will be able to show people we can deal with this disease responsibly, but we shouldn’t be afraid of it.”

If I had handled it any other way, I would have created more panic, more fear in the American people,” Trump added. “We are making great progress on dealing with this disease and making better progress with the economy than anyone had the right to expect.”

Trump first revealed on Thursday, October 1 that he and wife Melania Trump had tested positive for COVID-19. However, there’s been some major debate as to when he was actually diagnosed.
