Trump Supporter Outside WR Hospital: He Fought for Us, 'I'm Going to Fight for Him'
'He is for the American way. I’m for America. I’m for the American way'
As supporters of President Donald Trump gathered outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, one supporter said he would fight for the president because he has been “fighting for us” and vowed to “fight for him."
The Trump Prayer Rally attendee, only known as Reggie, said he came to the hospital to support Trump after seeing people gathering to support him the night before.
“Since I live an hour and a half away, I thought it’d be important for me to come out here and show my support for the president and to show how much I love him and what the’s doing for our country,” he said.
“I know many people tell me I shouldn’t support Trump because of the color of my skin, but they never ask me, why Trump?"
"He is fighting for America," Reggie stated.
"He is for the American way. I’m for America. I’m for the American way," he added.
"That is why I am here today,” he continued.

He then added Trump has been “fighting for us; I’m going to fight for him.”
Trump issued a video update from Walter Reed on Saturday, telling supporters he felt “much better now” and predicting that he will be back “soon.”
“I have to be back, because we still have to make America great again," Trump said.
"We’ve done an awfully good job of that, but we still have steps to go, and we have to finish that job,” he added.
Trump also addressed supporters gathered outside the hospital.
“It’s a beautiful thing to see, and I very much appreciate it, and I won’t forget it,” the president added.
On Saturday, Trump's physician said he has completed his first dose of remdesivir therapy and is “resting comfortably.”
Trump tweeted from the hospital earlier saying things are “going well.”
“Going well, I think!” he tweeted.
“Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”
“This evening I am happy to report that the president is doing very well,” said the doctor, Navy Commander Sean P. Conley.
“He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen,” the doctor added.
Trump was admitted on Friday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., “out of an abundance of caution,” the White House said.
