image for Trump Just Exposed Secret Service to COVID-19 to Do a Drive-By for MAGA Supporters

President Donald Trump climbed into an SUV with Secret Service agents Sunday evening for a drive-by acknowledging supporters gathered outside the hospital where he’s being treated for COVID-19, an intensely contagious virus that’s sickened some of his closest associates in recent days.

Secret Service agents, also wearing masks, were inside the black SUV with the president.

But it’s not clear exactly how many were in the vehicle for what Trump called a “little surprise” for the “great patriots” lining the street.

Secret Service agents are already reportedly frustrated with the president’s actions, according to the Washington Post, and feel he’s put their health at risk.

Supporters, who have been gathered outside the military hospital since Trump was admitted on Friday, were seen waving flags and cheering in videos of Trump’s passing motorcade.

Now that he’s improving, Conley said that Trump may be able to leave the hospital on Monday.

Trump said in a video posted to Twitter Sunday that he “learned a lot about COVID” during his brief hospital stay. »
