they put out a slightly more cautious statement. they are saying that he's recovering and his going well. but he didn't give a discharge date when he might be discharged. both nora had mentioned that he hoped to be discharged on friday. that doesn't look like it's going to happen. and i'm outside the hospital in san paula where he is. you can imagine there's lots of camera crews, lots of journalists, and a handful of supporters too. so we can have a listen to what they've got to say. so much wanted to show support for the president for, for anything we want to seem recover and get out of hospital. so you can decide where routing them up for you and your time here supporting my president. and i want him to run this country until 2026. he needs to be very healthy. how are you? ok, so one fan there who wants to see him in power until 2026,
