I klassisk Trump-stil tok USAs president Donald Trump søndag kveld en tur ut fra Walter Reed-sykehuset for å hilse på sine mange supportere som hadde søkt til sykehuset. Kritikken kom umiddelbart.
Trump tok seg en uannonsert tur ut i en pansret SUV for å hilse på de mange støttespillerne som hadde tatt oppstilling utenfor sykehuset.

Incredible to see the love and support for @realDonaldTrump outside Walter Reed. I was just speaking to my father and know he loves and appreciates all of you!

Turen ble, oppskriftsmessig nok, kritisert i øst og vest, også av Foreningen av korrespondenter i Det hvite hus:
“It is outrageous for the president to have left the hospital — even briefly — amid a health crisis without a protective pool present to ensure that the American people know where their president is and how he is doing. Now more than ever, the American public deserves independent coverage of the president so they can be reliably informed about his health.”
The White House Correspondents Association president denounced Trump for boarding his motorcade for a photo op around Walter Reed without the protective travel pool that is supposed to accompany the US President whenever he is out of the White House https://t.co/ErItANeSZh
