Donald Trump Jr says his father “is a fighter” claiming “it’s business as usual” for US President Donald Trump despite being moved to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
“They’re bringing him to Walter Reed, not for anything in particular other than just to have an abundance of caution for the leader of the free world,” he said.
“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him sick, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him actually have the flu.
“He’s obviously taking it very seriously, but he’s a fighter, he is still speaking with various senators about the stimulus package today.”
Mr Trump Jr said he didn’t believe the president’s plight changed anything, claiming President Trump “has always been a worker”.
“For the last few months, when I speak to my father, it’s usually after midnight and he’s still in the Oval Office working,” he said.
“He doesn’t sleep much, and he works hard and he’s going to keep fighting.
“He just wants to be in the action, that’s the way he is.”
