President Trump could be discharged from the hospital as early as Monday, his doctors said Sunday.

“If he continues to look and feel as well as he does today, our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as tomorrow to the White House where he can continue his treatment course,” said Dr. Brian Garibaldi.

Standing outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where Trump is being treated for COVID-19, the doctors also said the commander-in-chief experienced two episodes in which his oxygen levels dropped and were countered with drug therapy and supplemental oxygen.

“Thursday night into Friday morning when I left the bedside, the president was doing well with only mild symptoms and his oxygen was in the high 90s,” Dr. Sean Conley told reporters.

“Friday morning when I returned to the bedside president had a high fever and his oxygen, oxygen saturation was transiently dipping below 94 percent,” he said.

Conley said the president received dexamethasone and oxygen, and his saturation levels returned to normal.
