President Trump says he'll return to the White House on Monday evening, after being treated over the weekend for the coronavirus.

"I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M.," Trump tweeted. "Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!"

A press conference held by the president's doctors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in suburban Maryland is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.

Trump announced late Thursday night that he had tested positive for the virus.
