President Donald Trump surprised supporters on Sunday by taking a slow drive-by in an SUV past the crowd showing support for him as he is treated for the coronavirus at Walter Reed hospital.

The president, wearing a mask and seated inside a Secret Service SUV, waved at his supporters as they cheered and waved back.

Prior to his visit, White House staff posted a video of the president on Twitter previewing a “special surprise.”

“I learned a lot about COVID [Chinese coronavirus],” he said in the video. “I learned it by really going to school, this is the real school, this isn’t the ‘Let’s read the book school’ and I get it, and I understand it.”
