Doctors maintained during a televised briefing that President Trump was “doing very well” after a night at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

But shortly after the upbeat briefing, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows gave a more sober assessment to reporters at Walter Reed.

“The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery,” AP reports.

Two people close to the White House said separately that the president had trouble breathing on Friday and that his oxygen level dropped, NY Times reports.

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley also seemed to suggest that the initial diagnosis happened mid Wednesday; President Trump first reported it on Thursday night. Of note, Trump attended campaign events on Wed. night and Thursday. Update: Following the briefing, Conley appeared to retract his timeline and seems to have issued the following update. Note that it wasn’t actually Conley who misspoke using 48 hours instead of day-two, it was Dr. Brian Garibaldi.

Update: The less optimistic view, until now speculatively attributed to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, is now official according to the AP.

On the other hand, Meadows said today, “The president is doing very well. He is up and about and asking for documents to review. The doctors are very pleased with his vital signs. I have met with him on multiple occasions today on a variety of issues.”
