On Monday night, Trump returned to the White House after three days in hospital, having been diagnosed with Covid-19 at the end of last week.
After posing for photographs after removing his face covering, Trump posted a video on Twitter in which he urged Americans not to be “afraid” of the virus.

“We have the greatest country in the world. We’re going back. We’re going back to work. We’re going to be out front. As your leader, I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it, but I had to do it.”
He also told Americans not to be “afraid” of the virus, saying a vaccine would be “coming momentarily”.Since the video was posted, a number of Trump’s famous detractors have criticised his message, including Marvel star Chris Evans and showbiz legend Bette Midler.
“Don’t be afraid of Covid?!” Chris questioned. “You’ve been under round-the-clock care by the best doctors using the best drugs. Do you really think everyone has access to that?!”
Don’t be afraid of Covid?!
You’ve been under round-the-clock care by the best doctors using the best drugs. Do you really think everyone has access to that?!
Sadly, I’m sure you’re aware of that disparity, you just don’t care
This is reckless to a shocking degree, even for you https://t.co/H8CGlD9DcZ
