Heavily armed counter-assault teams were also pictured setting up base outside the hospital, giving rise to further thought that the visit was not scheduled.
Addressing Trump’s visit on Fox News with host Jeanine Pirro, Grisham said that anything outside her statement saying that the visit was a routine checkup was nothing more than rumors.
“Oh the rumors are always flying,” she said. “He [Trump] is as healthy as can be. I put a statement out about that. He’s got more energy than anybody in the White House. That man works from 6 a.m. until, you know, very, very late at night. He’s doing just fine.”
Later, Grisham retweeted a clip of her appearance on Fox News that quoted her as saying the visit was routine.
Tweeting alongside the words, she said: “EXACTLY! Thank you for helping me get the correct information out. Further speculation beyond the extensive and honest info I put out is wholly irresponsible and dangerous for the country.”
Trump also tweeted about his visit to Walter Reed.
“Visited a great family of a young man under major surgery at the amazing Walter Reed Medical Center,” Trump said. “Those are truly some of the best doctors anywhere in the world. Also began phase one of my yearly physical. Everything very good (great!). Will complete next year.”
