Barely three days after Donald Trump revealed he tested positive for the dreaded coronavirus, the US president has once again stirred a heated conversation after he left his isolation room just to greet his supporters.
Aboard his motorcade, Trump left the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Sunday, October 4, and was driven across the streets as he waved to jubilant followers who stood by the road.
Inside his official vehicle, Trump, who wore a black mask, could be seen waving and showing his supporter's thumbs-up sign.
Hawkeyed Secret Service agents who were in the same vehicle with Trump were also masked and wearing white Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
However, his appearance has provoked mixed reactions both from allies and detractors.
Those who supported Trump's surprise drive described it as a kind gesture to supporters who have been showing him a lot of love despite testing positive for the virus.
Detractors slammed Trump, describing the move as selfish since it put the health of his handlers on the line.

She explained that appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of the president's movement.
