Dr. Sean Conley, Physician to the President, provides an update on the President Donald Trump's condition at Walter Reed.
White House physician Sean Conley on Sunday disclosed that President Trump had received supplemental oxygen on Friday, after sidestepping questions about whether the president received oxygen the day before.

"Late Friday morning, when I returned to the bedside, the president had a high fever and his oxygen saturation was transiently dipping below 94 percent," Conley told reporters at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Sunday.

Conley said that he recommended the president be given supplemental oxygen and that the president was given it for about an hour on Friday.

Conley also said that Trump has experienced two episodes of transient drops in his oxygen levels since he was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus late Thursday evening. The second episode, which the doctor said occurred Saturday morning, led doctors to begin treating Trump with dexamethasone.
