President Donald Trump was demanding to go back to the White House on Sunday, two sources familiar with the situation told CNN.
“He is done with the hospital,” one of the sources said of Trump’s mood yesterday. Trump is concerned the sight of him being hospitalized “makes him look weak,” the other source said.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said earlier this morning that a determination by Trump’s doctors as to whether the President would return to the White House would be made later today.
The president had wanted to be discharged from Walter Reed yesterday, but doctors weren’t okay with it. So the car ride became the compromise https://t.co/bwHty5jcaD
