The Washington Post reports:
National security adviser Robert O’Brien said Sunday that Trump will remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for “at least another period of time.” O’Brien said Trump’s doctors “want to make sure they are there for the president and he’s getting the best treatment. But he’s doing well.”
O’Brien, in an appearance on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” said the White House national security team hasn’t discussed temporarily transferring power to Vice President Pence while the president is hospitalized. But he said the administration is “prepared.”
O’Brien, who himself had a mild case of the coronavirus in July, did not directly answer questions about whether the administration has identified the source of Trump’s infection.

Trump “actually wants to get back over the White House and get back to work, but I think he’s going stay at Walter Reed for at least another period of time,” National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien says on CBS.
