Just days after Donald Trump and First lady Melania Trump were diagnosed with Covid-19, the US president unexpectedly left the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre to greet supporters on Sunday.

In a video, which has now gone viral, Trump is seen wearing a mask while waving at his cheering supporters from a black SUV during the brief drive through Rockville Pike in Bethesda, a Maryland suburb of Washington DC just outside the hospital.

While the move is being seen as a show of strength by Trump amid the ongoing election campaign, it has drawn flak  online, with many criticising Trump for endangering the lives of his security staff.

Though there have been talks of Trump being released from the hospital as early as Monday, a new disclosure about his treatment has raised concerns about his condition being more serious than what the American public has been told.
