The New York Post report:
President Donald Trump phoned Rudy Giuliani from his hospital bed Saturday afternoon to declare he feels so healthy, “I could get out of here right now.” The former Big Apple mayor said his friend of 30 years sounded hale and hearty during the conversation. “If you can judge by the way he speaks, he sounded like vintage Donald Trump,” Giuliani said. The president dictated a statement to Giuliani.
“You go tell people I’m watching this coverage. I feel I could get out of here right now. But they’re telling me there can always be a backstep with this disease. But I feel I could go out and do a rally. I am the president of the United States. I can’t lock myself in a room. I had to confront [the virus] so the American people stopped being afraid of it so we could deal with it responsibly.”
