Stricken by COVID-19, a feverish and fatigued President Donald Trump was flown to a Walter Reed military hospital Friday night.

The White House said President Trump’s expected stay of “a few days” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was precautionary and that the President would continue to work from the presidential suite. President Trump left the White House Friday evening. He did not speak to reporters and board Marine One. President Trump in a video taped before he left for Walter Reed said this "I think I'm doing very well, but we're going to make sure that things work out."

“President Trump remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day,” said press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. “Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the president will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days.”
