USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump returned to the White House on Monday, three days after he arrived at Walter Reed hospital with coronavirus symptoms that were alarming enough that doctors administered oxygen and several rounds of aggressive treatment. Marine One touched town on the South Lawn shortly before 7 p.m. ET.
Minutes earlier, Trump walked down the steps of the hospital tower at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Trump, who was wearing a mask, did not answer shouted questions but gave several thumbs up and celebratory fist shakes for the cameras gathered outside the building.
A contagious Trump arrives back at the Covid-infested White House only to take off his mask for the cameras.

210,000 Americans are dead, cases are rising, Trump is still contagious, and much of the White House is infected or ordered home because of his disregard for public health. I don’t know what kind of person thinks it’s appropriate to be high fiving right now. https://t.co/6UjKVPes2m

Trump just arrived at the White House and immediately took his mask off. He has coronavirus. He is very contagious. He cares more about a photo opportunity than the health and safety of our country. He is making a dangerous, idiotic statement. If you support him you suck.

Trump is basically filming a campaign commercial outside of the WH without a mask in the presence of photographers. Let me repeat: the president has coronavirus and is walking around without a mask.

Note: President Trump, who has COVID-19, did not put his mask back on when he stepped inside the White House
