2/2 © Reuters. FILE PHOTO: White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows speaks to reporters about President Trump's health after he was tested positive for COVID19 2/2

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows revealed that President Donald Trump's condition on Friday was far worse than officials had made public, saying doctors recommended the president go to the hospital after seeing he had a fever and his blood oxygen level dropped rapidly.

Meadows made the comments in an interview with Fox News broadcast Saturday night that capped two days of conflicting and opaque assessments of the 74-year-old president's health.

"I can tell you this the biggest thing we see is with no fever now, and with him doing really well with his oxygen saturation levels," Meadows told Fox host Jeanine Pirro. “Yesterday morning we were really concerned by that. He had a fever, and his oxygen level had dropped rapidly. Yet in typical style, this president was up and walking around."

White House officials including Meadows said on Friday that Trump was experiencing "mild symptoms" and continuing to work. He told Fox News however, that doctors from Walter Reed and Johns Hopkins recommended that Trump go to the hospital.

"He's made unbelievable improvements from yesterday morning when I know a number of us, the doctor and I, were very concerned," Meadows said.

So Biden can go to key states and spread fear and panic because they have NO PLAN of action. Bidens plan is to sell the rest of America to the corrupt Chinese. Vote Trump!

Some people don't like to live in fear. we all die, but cowards die 1000 times. I'm paraphrasing someone. so hide in your basements with your masks on if you wish. But as for me, give me liberty or give me death. I think that's Thomas Paine.

It is time for POTUS to inject detergent into his body to ***Covid-19. Anyway, Covid-19 is just a hoax right? No worry, it will go away by itself. By why have to go to hospital? Having holiday in a hospital?

If a guy doesn’t know how to properly wear a mask, nothing is more simpler than that you may say, how on earth would such a guy be able to manager the top office in this nation? No wonder the master of the office was sent to the hospital for the infection.
