President Trump on Friday evening tweeted a pre-recorded video message thanking Americans for their support as he battles COVID-19, the first time he has been heard from since sharing news of his diagnosis.
"I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support," Trump says in the 18-second clip, tweeted moments after he arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
"I think Im doing very well but we're going to make sure that things work out," he added. "The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much. I appreciate it. I will never forget it."
The president's brief remarks were the first time he has spoken to the public since he revealed early Friday morning that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, which has infected more than 7 million people in the U.S. and killed more than 205,000.
The video clip was released just after Trump had been seen for the first time since his diagnosis when he left the White House to walk to Marine One for the short flight to Walter Reed. The president wore a mask, flashed a thumbs up and a wave to assembled reporters, and made his way to the helicopter under his own power.

Everybody's got the fever
That is somethin' you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing
Fever started long time ago
You give me fever
Hes looking OK thus far; the WR medical team will be watching his condition like a hawk. Going there was a good move.
Get well, we need you now more than ever!
He was standing. He sounded well. I would not have known he was sick from the video.
Just keep praying for him and his wife.
I bet he only went kicking and screaming, I cant even imagine what it was like trying to get him to go to Walter Reed!!
The Walter Reed medical team cannot be trusted. Their families need to be secured until the President is out of danger.
Moments ago at the White House as the President walks to Marine One.
as long as he’s wearing a shirt and tie. it’s all good
I was thinking the same thing. Probably couldnt get The President to get rest at the WH.
If he’s got a fever, there’s only one cure...
So many of us will be doing just that.
The left is very evil but God is in control and I believe HE is on our side.
Always gracious, God bless and protect President Trump and First Lady Melania
According to OANN, he’s been “Cracking” jokes since he got there..so that’s a good sign
Mr. President! We love you and are praying for you and First Lady. PLEASE follow the doctors advice. If they say “REST”, pls rest!
