President Donald Trump will be hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and remain there for “the next few days,” the White House said Friday afternoon.
The development came roughly 15 hours after Trump disclosed he had tested positive for coronavirus. The White House described the move as precautionary and not the product of an urgent deterioration in Trump’s condition.
There has been no transfer of power to Vice President Mike Pence, said White House spokeswoman Alyssa Farah. “The President is in charge,” she said.
