Dr. Sean Conley will speak about the President's condition at approximately 9am MT. The update will be carried live on Q2.

The White House physician said Friday night the president is "doing very well" and has not required supplemental oxygen. He said Mr. Trump started treatment with remdesivir, a drug that has shortened the recovery time for some patients with the virus.

Mr. Trump tweeted an update from the hospital, where the White House says he will spend the next few days. "Going well, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!" he wrote late Friday.

White House spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany said earlier that Mr. Trump had "mild symptoms" and was being transferred to Walter Reed "out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts."
