Speaking from behind a desk at his suite at the Walter Reed Medical Centre, Trump said he thought he would be back to work 'soon'.

He said: "I came here, wasn't feeling so well, I feel much better now. We're working hard to get me all the way back.

"Over the next period of a few days, I guess that's the real test.

"We'll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days."

Discussing his Presidential election campaign, Trump continued: "I'll be back, I think I'll be back soon, and I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started and the way we've been doing and the kind of numbers that we've been doing."

The POTUS then joked that as his wife was 'slightly younger' than him she was handling it 'very nicely'.

"This evening he completed his second dose of Remdesivir without complication.

"He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98 percent all day.

"He spent most of the afternoon conduction business and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty.

"While not yet out of the woods, the team remains cautiously optimistic."

In the clip, Trump said he was 'fighting' for everyone who had been struck down with the virus, saying: "This was something that happened, and it's happened to millions of people all over the world, and I'm fighting for them.

"Not just in the US, I'm fighting for them all over the world.

"We're going to beat this coronavirus, or whatever you want to call it, and we're going to beat it soundly."

Trump also used the video message to thank people for their well wishes and messages of support.
