Trump calls reporters 'sick' for saying he had heart attack
US President said he had gone to the medical center to visit the family of a wounded soldier.
U.S. President Donald Trump said the media that had spread rumors about his alleged heart attack are ‘sick’ and ‘dangerous’.
“I went for a physical and I came back. My wife said, ‘Darling, are you okay? What’s wrong? Oh, they’re reporting you may have had a heart attack,'” he said during the conference. “I said, ‘Why did I have a heart attack?'”
“‘Because you went to Walter Reed Medical Center,'” Trump said his wife Melania Trump said. “That’s where we go when we get the physicals.”
But he said he had been there for a very short time. He only visited the family of a wounded soldier, who was to be operated on. Trump said that he returned home soon, and was greeted with news that he has had severe chest pain.
“These people are sick. They’re sick and the press really in this country is dangerous,” he said. “We don’t have freedom of the press in this country. We have the opposite. We have a very corrupt media and I hope they can get their act straight now, because it’s very, very bad and very, very dangerous for our country.”
White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said Saturday that the American leader was “anticipating a very busy 2020” and decided to take advantage of his free weekend to begin part of his planned annual medical checkup. To do that, he went to the Walter Reed Hospital in Maryland. Following Trump’s visit to the medical institution, Grisham noted that the president feels energetic and has no health complaints.
