President Donald Trump tweeted out two videos including one where he talks about older voters and declares himself a 'senior' as he contends with COVID-19 – but both were shot Wednesday, revealing little about his current condition.
'So, to my favorite people in the world: the seniors. I'm a senior, I know you don't know that. Nobody knows that. Maybe you don't have to tell them. But I'm a senior. We are making tremendous progress with this horrible disease that was sent over from China,' Trump begins.

The video was shot on the South Lawn, and ran just under 2 1/2 minutes. It carries a headline: 'TO MY FAVORITE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!'
Trump's appearances on video came on a day that even by late afternoon the White House had not released an update from White House physician Cmdr. Sean Conley.
