Our President is a class act.
President Trump left Walter Reed after noticing a large amount of his supporters outside of the hospital and decided to do a drive by parade for his supporters.
Earlier in the day he tweeted a video updating everyone on his health, to conclude the video he mentioned he had a “little surprise” for his supporters outside of Walter Reed.
Watch what the surprise was down below:

How awesome is that Trump is battling COVID and still finds the time to thank his supporters for coming out.
Trump is fighting this virus like a champ!

Fox News was quick to cover the story and reported this:
President Trump tweeted out a video of himself at Walter Reed Medical Center on Sunday where he said he’s learned a lot about the novel coronavirus and promised his supporters gathered out side the hospital “a little surprise.”
“We’re going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have,” Trump said. “They’ve been out there for a long time and they’ve got Trump flags and they love our country so I’m not telling anybody but you but I’m about to make a little surprise visit.”
Shortly after sending out his tweet, the president made his surprise appearance when he briefly left the hospital and drove by, waved and gave a thumbs up to the groups of supporters gathered outside in Maryland before returning to Walter Reed shortly after.
The White House said that “appropriate precautions” were taken for Trump’s trip and that the drive was cleared by the medical staff at Walter Reed.
USA Today wasn’t left out and reported the story too:
Claiming progress in his personal fight against COVID-19, President Donald Trump ventured outside for a little bit on Sunday to greet supporters who gathered at the hospital before then returning to the facility.
Trump, wearing a suit and a mask, waved to supporters from the back seat of an SUV as it passed by the demonstration at the Walter Reed medical center in Bethesda, Maryland.
“I also think we’re going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have out on the street. They’ve been out there for a long time and they’ve got Trump flags and they love our country,” Trump said in a video recorded at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center moments before he was spotted outside.
“It’s been a very interesting journey, I learned a lot about COVID,” Trump said in pre-recorded remarks.”I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the let’s-read-the-book school, and I get it, and I understand it.”
