President Donald Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday evening, after feeling “fatigue” in the wake of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

“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,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
