In a statement on Twitter, President Trump asserted that contracting COVID-19 may have been a “blessing from God” becuase it helped reveal new treatment options.

On Wednesday, President Trump shared his experience with COVID-19 noting that ultimately catching the virus was “a blessing in disguise” because it revealed what he claims is an extremely effective treatment option.

“For me, I walked in, I didn’t feel good, a short 24-hours later; I was feeling great — I wanted to get out of the hospital. And that’s what I want for everybody,” Trump said in a video posted on Twitter. “I want everybody to be given the same treatment as your president, because I feel great. I feel, like, perfect.”

“I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it,” Trump asserted. “This was a blessing in disguise. I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said, ‘let me take it’ … and it was incredible the way it worked,” he added.

President Trump then shared that he is calling for the emergency authorization of one particular experimental drug, Regeneron – which was a part of a cocktail of experimental drugs used to treat him – to be released “soon” and for free to the American public ahead of the vaccine. Trump says he anticipates a vaccine being released after the Presidential election.

“So, hopefully this is going to be not just a therapeutic, it’s going to be much more than a therapeutic. You’re going to get better, you’re going to get better fast just like I did. So, again, a blessing in disguise. Good luck,” he concluded.

On Wednesday, an update on the President’s condition was provided by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany in a statement by Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley.

“His physical exam and vital signs, including oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, all remain stable in normal rage,” Conley stated. “He’s now been fever-free for more than 4 days for over 24 hours, and has not needed nor received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization.”
