President Trump is “ready” to get back to work, and the White House is hopeful he will be discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center sometime on Monday, the White House said Monday morning.

“Spoke to the President this morning. He continued to improve over night and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule. He will meet with his doctors and nurses this morning to make further assessments of his progress,” White House Chief of Staff Meadows said.

“We are still optimistic that he will be able to return to the White House later today, with his medical professionals making that determination later today,” Meadows added.

On Sunday, Trump’s doctors said the president’s oxygen saturation level dropped below 94 percent twice briefly and he was given supplemental oxygen on Friday. Trump also had a “high fever” that day.
