President Trump’s Joyride Around Hospital to Greet Fans Criticized as ‘Reckless’
October 5, 2020
President Donald Trump's car ride around Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he is being treated for having the coronavirus, drew intense criticism and raised serious questions about the conduct of himself and his staff. The 74-year-old was hospitalized Friday after an early morning tweet announcing he had tested positive for COVID-19. Trump asked to be discharged, and when his doctors refused, the drive-by greeting was seen as a “compromise” for the rally-loving president.
