President Trump returned to the White House Monday evening from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after receiving multiple aggressive treatments for his COVID-19 infection. Yet, despite his protestations otherwise, he seems obviously not back to full health. It pretty much always takes at least a week to recover from a bad case of the disease, and often much longer. He has not yet tested negative, and video of his White House arrival appeared to show him wincing in pain while taking deep, labored breaths.
Perhaps Trump will recover with no complications. But it’s also quite possible that he is experiencing a false dawn.
