El Paso University Medical Center says doctors did not leave the operating room to congratulate Trump
But the hospitals he visits say this has not happened – and that doctors will never stop surgery to congratulate the president.
"At no point did doctors or staff leave active operating rooms during the presidential visit period," Ryan Milke, a spokesman for El Paso University Medical Center, said in a statement to The Washington Post on Thursday.
Trump visited University Medical Center earlier this month, days after gun police say he was motivated by the hatred of immigrants who killed 22 and injured dozens at Walmart. which are already written out are they went to the hospital to meet the president, none of the eight victims, who were still being treated, wanted to do it, Mielke told The Post at the time.
"It's a very sensitive moment in life them, "he said. "Some said they did not want to meet the president, some did not want visitors."
The El Paso Medical Center is racing to save the lives of the victims of the rage.
The denial is clearly stinging, because Trump returned to the topic Wednesday, weeks after his visit to the city. Asked during a large-scale exchange with reporters whether he spoke with victims of mass shootings if they would support changes to gun laws, he ignored the issue and instead took the opportunity to complain about news of his visits to El Paso and Dayton [1
9659002] In hospitals in both cities, the president states, "my love for me – and for me, perhaps as a representative of the country – but for me – and my love for them was incomparable. These are amazing people. But if you read the documents, it is as if no one will meet me. "
This was not true, he insisted:" Not only did they meet me, they poured out of the room. "
White House officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Thursday and it is unclear whether Trump describes his visit to a Texas hospital or an Ohio hospital, or both, when he claims surgeons rushed from operating rooms "To See Them
" Our doctors and staff never leave an active operating room, treatment area, or patient room to greet anyone, "says Ben Sutherly, a spokesman for Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, before The Washington Post on Friday.  Trump visited both b The White House previously painted a glowing picture of her appearance at El Paso University Medical Center, saying the president was "very warmly greeted by not only the victims and their families, but many medical staff members who lined the corridors to greet them. "Likewise, White House social media director Dan Scavino wrote on Twitter that Trump" was treated like a rock star "at a Miami hospital It rains in Dayton, where the president met with three victims of the mass shooting that killed nine and wounded dozens in the entertainment district of the city just hours after the massacre in El Paso.
Miami Valley Hospital officials previously told reporters that Trump was meeting with trauma surgeons and nurses during a "very meaningful visit," which sometimes became emotional and "not about politics."
Following a visit to Dayton, where Trump seemed to have a more welcoming welcome than in El Paso, the White House released photos and video showing the president smiling at pictures with nurses in scrubs and doctors with lab coats and stethoscopes. However, there is no indication that any of these hospital staff has just left the operating room. No one wears long-sleeved dresses, surgical masks, and headgear that are usually required in sterile surgical environments. (Medical staff wearing such clothing looked out the window as protesters gathered outside the hospital to oppose Trump's visit, shot by an Associated Press photographer.)
Trump's remarks about physicians withdrawing from the operating room, provoked some skepticism in the social media field, since interrupting an operation would be risky and simply leaving the room for a few seconds would require surgeons to change their clothes and sterilize their hands again It is and forearms.
Trump, “When I visited the hospitals, the doctors came out of the operating room to meet me! "- Hey, keep that chest open. I'll be back in a few minutes. I have to meet the president. "
