December 29th – During the diagnosis of coronavirus treatment in early October, U.S. President Trump left the hospital and went out by car, which attracted a lot of criticism, including James Phillips, a doctor at the medical facility where he was staying at that time.
U.S. media revealed on December 28 that Phillips said he did not regret being excluded from the hospital’s shift schedule for criticizing the president.
According to the Capitol Hill, Phillips tweeted on the 28th that he would miss his patients and thanked his colleagues at the hospital for their support: “I am honored to work here (Walter Reed Medical Center) and look forward to new opportunities.
I insist on what I said, and I don’t regret it.” U.S. media revealed that earlier in December, Phillips was excluded from the shift for his critical remarks on the behavior of the President of the United States who was treated at the hospital.
In early October, during his hospitalization with COVID-19, Trump went out in a car and waved to his supporters.
Subsequently, Phillips tweeted: “The SUV of the President of the United States is not only bulletproof, but also sealed to prevent chemical attacks.
The risk of transmission of COVID-19 inside the vehicle is as high as that of transmission outside the treatment facility.
This irresponsible attitude is shocking. I have a lot of sympathy for the Secret Service personnel who have been forced to carry out their duties.
In an interview with a show, Phillips also pointed out that Trump’s travel by car during illness was “a dangerous move” and sent the wrong message to patients that “you can go out”.
