New revelations about President Donald Trump’s secret trip to Walter Reed Medical Center last year are coming to light, after the White House at the time tried to claim what appeared to be an emergency visit was merely Trump getting ahead of his annual physical, by months. A new book by the New York Times’ Michael Schmidt reveals that White House officials were so worried Vice President Mike Pence was summoned and placed on standby should the President have become incapacitated due to being anesthetized.
Trump is clearly agitated over the renewed coverage, and insisting his trip to the hospital was not because he “suffered a series of mini-strokes” – while neglecting to say what the trip was for.
And as usual, he tries to blame his weaknesses on Joe Biden.
It never ends! Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes. Never happened to THIS candidate – FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!

Strangely, no news reports about Schmidt’s book mention a series of mini-strokes. The most recent news report about Trump and mini strokes came one month ago, in The Inquisitor, citing this tweet from author and anti-Trump activist Don Winslow.
One of the benefits of making videos that garner 5 million+ views is that you hear from a lot of people, including whistleblowers inside Trump administration.
I’ve received three communications saying that during his term Trump has suffered a “series” of “mini-strokes.”

It would seem perhaps Trump has cause for concern.
I’m not the stroke victim, you’re the stroke victim. https://t.co/bqjOkAAssF

Trump is talking about Michael Schmidt’s new book, which reported that Pence was on “standby” during Trump’s unannounced visit to Walter Reed last year… none of the excerpts I’ve seen said anything about “a series of mini-strokes”https://t.co/AJrzHOimhP https://t.co/VguWwZLfUU

Did anyone actually report “a series of mini-strokes” or did Trump just accidently tell us what happened at Walter Reed? https://t.co/PIGUtWPBri

It’s clear you’ve had a stroke, or some other neurological issue. Body language doesn’t lie. That being said, you certainly protest way too much about this for there not to be some truth to the matter, be it mini-strokes or some other malady. https://t.co/wSpnUDISkN

Way to get ahead of a story that wasn’t a story until you tried to get ahead of it. https://t.co/3rBvYOoAfn

A SERIES OF MINI-STROKES. Thanks for filling in the details.
And yeah. It was totally you so you’re either lying again or the mini-strokes caused amnesia in that mini-brain. https://t.co/C9wYoHiJ2v pic.twitter.com/m0PJA7K6e1
