White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah confirmed that Trump had not transferred power to Vice President Mike Pence, despite his hospitalization. ‘The president is in charge,’ she said.
Trump, 74, has been treated for COVID-19 with a ‘cocktail’ of antibodies produced by Regeneron, his doctor announced on Friday, and is ‘fatigued’ but otherwise in good spirits, as is First Lady Melania Trump.
‘President Trump remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day,’ press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
‘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.
‘President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady,’ McEnany added.
