Thousands of people around the United States are showing their support and sending prayers for the first family following the President’s coronavirus diagnosis.
Officials in Ohio proclaimed Sunday as a day of prayer for President Trump and the First Lady. Governor Mike DeWine made the announcement on Facebook on Saturday.
Supporters also gathered outside Walter Reed Medical Center this weekend to remind the President he is receiving prayers and best wishes from the American people.
Attendees donned MAGA gear while sending their love to the commander in chief.
“We heard that there was a vigil,” said one attendee. “We said, ‘We’ve got to go and send our love, show Donald Trump he’s in our hearts and prayers.’”
Incredible to see the love and support for @realDonaldTrump outside Walter Reed. I was just speaking to my father and know he loves and appreciates all of you!
