Is It Too Early For President Trump To Be Home After Hospital Stay?


An attending physician told Newsy he's concerned about the coronavirus in the White House after president's return.

US President Trump was flown by helicopter to Walter Reed Medical Center to be treated for coronavirus.

The White House says the president is fatigued and suffering from a low grade fever. First Lady Melania Trump and several White House staffers have also tested positive. The diagnosis comes just days after a contentious debate with Former Vice President Joe Biden. Both Biden and his wife tested negative for the virus on Friday.

Joining the discussion:

Mary C. Curtis is a columnist for the political publication, "Roll Call" and host of the "Equal Time" podcast.
John Burnett is the Managing Director and Founder of 1 Empire Group.
Nate Lerner is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Build the Wave.
Dr. Kate Tulenko is the CEO and Founder of Corvus Health.
Joe Biden spoke at a campaign event in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Friday and said he is praying for a swift recovery for President Trump and first lady Melania Trump, who both tested positive for COVID-19. Biden said it's a reminder that we all need to take the virus seriously, and he urged everyone to follow the advice of medical experts and wear masks. Watch his remarks.
President Trump will be transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center for a "few days," "out of an abundance of caution" and at the advice of his physician and medical experts, the White House said, after he tested positive for COVID-19. "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O'Donnell is joined by CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook and CBS News White House correspondent Ben Tracy for the latest.
More than 150 groups are urging President Trump to roll back his ban on diversity training, saying it creates confusion and uncertainty.
