President Donald Trump moaned about renewed speculation about his sudden visit last year to the Walter Reed Medical Center.
New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt reports in his new book that Vice President Mike Pence was put on standby in November 2019 when the president was rushed on a Saturday afternoon to the military hospital, which the White House later explained as routine testing, but others have speculated was more serious.
"It never ends!" Trump tweeted, after cable news programs covered the new revelations.

Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!"
