President Trump shares video message, says he's doing well as he heads to the hospital
Most people were asleep when the news broke about President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump testing positive for COVID-19.
Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shared an update from President Trump's physician Friday afternoon saying the president received a single-dose antibody cocktail made by Regeneron. It also described the president as "fatigued but in good spirits."
"I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support. I'm going to Walter Reed Hospital. I think I'm doing very well, but we're going to make sure that things work out. The first lady is doing very well. So, thank you very much. I appreciate it and I will never forget. Thank you," he said in a Twitter video message.
Trump will continue to work within the hospital's presidential suite.
Joe Biden announced Friday he is taking down attack ads against Trump. His team says he made the decision after hearing Trump would be hospitalized.
The White House says there will not be a transfer of power.
It is unclear if next week's vice presidential debate is still on.
Trump's upcoming rallies have either been postponed or will be held virtually.
