Is President Donald Trump signing blank papers while being treated as a Covid-19 patient? This is what the Internet is asking after the White House released two pictures late on Saturday, October 3, night showing the POTUS working from Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Maryland. The photos show Trump in the presidential suite where he was admitted on Friday, October 2, after he tested positive for Covid-19, reported Daily Mail. Trump is seen working away and signing documents in the photos. Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, tweeted one of those pictures of the POTUS working at the medical facility. She wrote, "Nothing can stop him from working for the American people. RELENTLESS!"

However, the documents which Trump can be seen working on appeared to be blank to many Internet users. People zoomed in the pictures to mention that the POTUS was allegedly signing on some blank pieces of paper. It cannot be clarified though if the documents that Trump signed on at the Walter Reed facility were actually blank or not. However, the Internet was quick to comment on the photos. The suite, where the president is admitted, is called Ward 71 and is well "equipped" for the POTUS to keep up with his work. No sooner than the pictures of Trump working from the medical facility dropped, people blasted him saying he was signing blank papers. The users did not fact-check before making the assertions.

A user tweeted: “Love to work at my job signing my name in the middle of a blank sheet of paper.” Reporter Andrew Feinberg tweeted, “The White House has released these photos which purport to show DonaldTrump 'at work' at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.” He further wrote, “ZOOM: DonaldTrump appears to be signing his name to a blank sheet of paper in this photo.” Feinberg added, “Here's what appears to be the same blank sheet of paper in a screengrab from the video of Trump  released by the White House earlier today.”

Journalist Jon Ostrower wrote, “The photos released by the WH tonight of the president working at Walter Reed were taken 10 minutes apart at 5:25:59 pm and 5:35:40 pm ET Saturday, according to the EXIF data embedded in both AP wire postings that were shared by the White House this evening.” Another slammed Trump’s presidency saying, “His whole presidency is staged so of course his hospitalization is, too.”

Others asked for Trump's discharge if he is fine. “Trump was given Remdesivir & a late-stage unapproved trial drug, used on compassion grounds. Experts call this kind of treatment “throwing kitchen sink” at him. Walter Reed’s reputation is at stake here. Is Trump critically ill? Discharge him if this is all a charade,” read a tweet. Another slammed him saying, “Why would he fake being sick?”
