President Trump has tweeted from the hospital that things are “going well.”

“Going well, I think!” he tweeted just after 11:30 p.m.

“Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”

Meanwhile, his doctor said Trump has completed his first dose of remdesivir therapy, and is “resting comfortably.”

The promising anti-viral therapy is still undergoing clinical trials and has so far has shown success in reducing deaths in severely ill coronavirus patients; its value in treating less-severe cases is still being studied.

“This evening I am happy to report that the president is doing very well,” said the doctor, Navy Commander Sean P. Conley.

“He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen,” the doctor added.

The president is “strong” and “upbeat” while in the hospital, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy had tweeted an hour earlier.

“I just got off the phone with President Trump,” the House minority leader said in his tweet.
