White House physician Doctor Sean Conley told the press on Sunday that Trump needed supplemental oxygen twice, and that he was given dexamethasone, a steroid typically used to treat serious COVID-19 cases. But Trump tweeted today that he’ll be leaving the hospital at 6:30 p.m. eastern time. Meanwhile, a new national poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal shows Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by 14 points.
