Conley and doctors at Walter Reed briefed the press Saturday morning. Conley said he was «extremely happy» with the progress being made and Trump’s fatigue and mild cough were improving. He said Trump had been fever free for 24 hours.

Conley would not directly answer whether Trump had received any oxygen during the course of the illness, but said that he had not received any on Saturday and was walking around. He also said Trump did not receive supplemental oxygen Thursday or Friday afternoon once at Walter Reed.

Shortly after, a White House official took a less rosy tone, telling pool reporters that «The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery.»

The Associated Press identified that information as coming from White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows

The White House then walked back the timeline given by Conley and other doctors at the press conference, saying that President Trump was diagnosed and began receiving treatment Thursday night.

Trump fired off a tweet not too long after, saying he was «feeling well.»

Doctors, Nurses and ALL at the GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center, and others from likewise incredible institutions who have joined them, are AMAZING!!!Tremendous progress has been made over the last 6 months in fighting this PLAGUE. With their help, I am feeling well!

The White House initially said Trump would be at Walter Reed for a «few days.» On Saturday, doctors said they were re-evaluating each day and that if he needs the full five-day course of Remdesivir, he would stay at Walter Reed to receive it.
