Former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale was released on Saturday from a Minnesota hospital where he was treated for cold and flu symptoms, a spokeswoman for the facility said.

Former President Jimmy Carter on Friday announced at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis that Mondale had told him by phone he was at the Mayo Clinic, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune newspaper reported.

Mondale served under Carter during his 1977-1981 administration and in the 1984 election he ran unsuccessfully for the White House against then President Ronald Reagan.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
