Supporters of President Donald Trump gather outside Walter Reed

Description:

President Donald Trump has arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center where he will remain "for the next few days" following his positive test for the coronavirus.

Trump walked out of the White House residence Friday evening clad in a mask, offering a wave and a thumbs up to reporters as he boarded Marine One to travel to the medical center in Bethesda, Md.

The president was able to make the walk under his own power, and he saluted the Marine outside the helicopter door before boarding. Trump was followed by chief of staff Mark Meadows and members of the White House medical unit.

A small crowd had gathered outside Walter Reed Medical Center as Trump arrived at 6:30 p.m., snapping photos through the fence.

The White House has said Trump's symptoms are mild and that he is in good spirits.

"President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. 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," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
