    Let us hope it is precautionary, that he, his wife, their children & grandchildren are in good shape.

    In the same way BoJo was submitted to Intensive Care, despite never needing a respirator.

    "Precautionary measure" sums it up nicely, but it makes for good click-bait.

    I see BLM have started warming up just in case the worst should happen and their services are called upon.

    Personally, I think it is all a stage-managed set up.

    His symptoms may have worsened overnight.

    The trouble is he, and many of those around him, have distorted the truth about so many things that people are inclined to be sceptical. Boy who cried wolf scenario.

    It's even proposed that Melania testing positive is also stage-managed. When do they ever spend time together outside of public appearances? It's always been known that she's living in NYC while Trump is in Washington. Their body language when together is very stoic. I think their "relationship" is entirely for appearances - there is no way that they share a bed.

    So what better way to show unity between POTUS and FLOTUS than to have them both test positive and both go through this hardship together!

    I was inclined to believe that, and still am, but then this

    Eric Trump @EricTrump
    @RealDonaldTrump is a true warrior. He will fight through this with the same strength and conviction that he uses to fight for America each and every day. I ask you to join me in praying for his recovery. I have never been more proud of someone and what they have had to endure.

    Unlike you to opt for the conspiracy theory...?

    She left New York in 2017. She lives either in the White House or allegedly with her son & parents in Potomac.

    I'm sure our conspiracy theorist in residence will be along shortly to put us all straight.

    Certainly very plausible.

    He'll announce he's been cured by some 'wonder drug' and and Ivanka will get rich(er) as the share price of the "developer" rockets.

    Despite Trump's age, clinical obesity and maleness (all of which increase his risk), statistically he's got something like a 96% chance of pulling clear of this and remaining in good health.

    So hopefully, it's merely precautionary.

    However, given the speed at which he's been hospitalised (very early on), with reports indicating that he's still feeling quite healthy, I can't help but feel that it's being stage managed very deliberately, as well.

    A contested position.

    It should also be noted that the White House has a well equipped medical unit, with its own physicians and nurses, which does make the move to hospital seem a little more alarming.

    The fact that he walked to the helicopter and has made a spoken statement, is still tweeting and no temporary handover of power having been made, suggests that he's well for now. Obviously, long may this be the case.

    But given this, it does seem more stage management.
