Kim Jong-un wishes Donald Trump a ‘full recovery’ after President rushed to hospital with coronavirus

KIM Jong-un has wished President Donald Trump a speedy recovery after it was revealed that the US leader was hospitalized with coronavirus.

The dictator sent a message to the president, saying that he wishes both him and Melania a "full recovery" from the virus.

North Korean state media reported: "He offered his sympathy to the president and the first lady.

"He sincerely hoped that they would be recovered as soon as possible.

"He hoped they will surely overcome it. He sent warm greetings to them."

Trump, 74, was seen giving a "thumbs up" on Friday night as he walked across the White House South Lawn to presidential helicopter Marine One for the first time since he confirmed he had the deadly virus.

Shortly after he was transported to the military hospital in Maryland, Trump tweeted out a video of himself thanking "everybody for the tremendous support.

"I'm going to Walter Reed hospital. I think I'm doing very well. But we're going to make sure things work out," Trump said.

He said First Lady Melania Trump – who also tested positive for COVID – "is doing very well."

"So thank you very much. I appreciate it, I will never forget it," the president said. "Thank you."

Once Trump arrived at the hospital, he was seen being driven in an armored car full of masked Secret Service members.

Trump was seen waving from the back seat of the vehicle.

Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said: "President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day.

"Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days."

ABC News reports Trump is experiencing a fever, chills, some nasal congestion, and is coughing.

White House spokesperson Alyssa Farah said that Trump "is in charge" and has not transferred any power to his second-in-command, Vice President Mike Pence.

The extraordinary turn of events in Washington is throwing the US presidential election – already historic and notable – into chaos.

Late on Thursday, it was confirmed that a top aide to Trump, Hope Hicks, had the virus after days of traveling alongside the president to campaign events.

Around 1am on Friday, Trump tweeted that both he and First Lady Melania both tested positive, adding: "We will get through this TOGETHER!"

Trump hasn't tweeted since – which is unusual for the president, who frequently tweets throughout his day, most days.

A new memo released detailed the mix of vitamins and antioxidants the president is taking for coronavirus symptoms.

Conley, in writing the memo to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, wrote of Trump's health status a day after he tested positive.
