Donald Trump is given Ebola drug remdesivir amid ‘trouble breathing’ as he tweets ‘Going well, I think’ after being medivaced to Walter Reed for COVID treatment and giving thumbs up as he walked to Marine One

President Donald Trump’s physician said Friday night that the president is ‘doing very well’ as it was confirmed that Trump had been given remdesivir therapy, an antiviral medication, after being admitted to Walter Reed Military Medical Center. 

The first dose of the Ebola drug was administered after an advisor claimed there is ‘reason for concern’ as the president had ‘trouble breathing’ following his positive coronavirus test.  

‘This is serious,’ the source told CNN, stating that Trump was ‘very tired, very fatigued’.

The charges involve two victims and stem from incidents that occurred more than a decade ago, District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement.

Weinstein, who was convicted earlier this year in New York of sex crimes, now faces a total of four counts each of forcible rape and forcible oral copulation, two counts of sexual battery by restraint and one count of sexual penetration by use of force, involving five victims for crimes that span from 2004 to 2013 in the Los Angeles area, Lacey said.

Representatives for Weinstein, who is serving 23 years in prison in New York, had no immediate comment on the new charges. Weinstein has always denied having nonconsensual sex with anyone.

Census Bureau says it will continue count through Oct. 31, per court order

The Census Bureau said Friday it will continue its count through Oct. 31 as ordered by a federal judge, and not the end of next week as it previously indicated.

Driving the news: The statement came one day after U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh said the Census Bureau, as well as the Department of Commerce violated her Sept. 24 injunction order “in several ways” and “a flood of emails to the Court and the parties suggests ongoing non-compliance in the field.”

  • The Sept. 24 injunction said the Census Bureau could not end the census a month early.
  • Koh on Thursday ordered the bureau to text message all of its employees, “notifying them of the Court’s Injunction Order, stating that the October 5, 2020 ‘target date; is not operative, and stating that data collection operations will continue through October 31, 2020.”
  • She also ordered Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham to file a declaration by Monday confirming that the agency was complying with the Sept. 24 order.
  • Koh threatened sanctions or contempt proceedings if the agency and its officials violated her order again.
