Trump’s children offer support, prayers after COVID-19 diagnosis


President Trump’s children offered their support and prayers for their father on Friday after he revealed he had contracted COVID-19.

“@RealDonaldTrump is a true warrior. He will fight through this with the same strength and conviction that he uses to fight for America each and every day,” Eric Trump said in a tweet. “I ask you to join me in praying for his recovery. I have never been more proud of someone and what they have had to endure.”

First daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump added, “You are a warrior and will beat this. I love you dad.”

The president’s oldest child, Donald Trump Jr., took his thoughts to Instagram where he posted an image of his father and First Lady Melania Trump seemingly in prayer.

“I am humbly asking that you pray for the health and well-being of my father and the First Lady,” a message over the picture read.

President Trump spent Friday night in Walter Reed National Medical Center out of an “abundance of caution.” He had been treated with Remdesivir as well as a “polyclonal antibody cocktail” provided by pharmaceutical giant Regeneron.

On Saturday, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows left the hospital to deliver “Trump chocolate kisses” to a small crowd of supporters who had gathered outside. Meadows said Trump was in good spirits and doing well.

“Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!,” Trump said in a tweet late Friday evening.
