Trump supporters gather outside Walter Reed Hospital & across US to pray for speedy recovery as president battles Covid

DONALD Trump supporters gathered outside Walter Reed Medical Center to wish the president a speedy recovery on Saturday.

Fans were seen wearing masks while carrying signs supporting the president and American flags.

“You can’t spell triumph without Trump,” one sign reads.

Other signs told the president to “Get Well” as Trump receives treatment for COVID-19 at the hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

"I think people should just put everything aside and just wish him better because coronavirus is a very dangerous virus and he's an elderly man. So, everyone should just pray for his safety and pray for that he makes it out of this safely," one man told WRC-TV.

Though most of the demonstrators praised and supported Trump, some anti-Trump protesters near the hospital got into a minor altercation with a Trump supporter, the outlet reported.

The gathering comes as Americans across the country have wished Trump well after the president was hospitalized with the coronavirus.

In New York, Daniela Taomorina was pictured praying with other supporters at the New York Triumph Rally on Staten Island.

“God Bless America. God Bless President Trump and Melania,” read another sign at the Staten Island gathering.

Supporters were also seen gathering in car parades in Ohio and boat rallies in Florida – all praising the president.

Trump shared a video message to his adoring fans on Saturday from inside the hospital claiming he feels “much better now” after reports on Friday ranged regarding the severity of his illness.

"We’re gonna beat this coronavirus – or whatever you want to call it – and we’re going to beat it soundly,” Trump vowed.

Sean Conley, the White House doctor, added at a press conference outside the hospital that the president was in “exceptionally good spirits” and has been given the experimental drug Remdesivir.
