The American administration is ready for any development of the situation in connection with the hospitalization of US President Donald Trump, as well as any hostile actions by foreign states, said United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“We are fully prepared for all scenarios that may take place,” Pompeo TASS quoted as saying.
The US Secretary of State recalled that Trump on Sunday, right from the hospital, held a meeting “with the entire team responsible for national security.”
When asked whether foreign states could take advantage of Trump’s disease to their advantage, the secretary of state said: “The whole team is ready. <…> We know that there are <…> hostile actors in the world. The United States is fully prepared, both the State Department and our diplomats are ready. This afternoon I spoke with General [Mark] Millie (Chairman of the US Chiefs of Staff). ” “Everyone is ready,” the head of the American Foreign Ministry assured.
On Sunday, doctors said Trump could be discharged from the hospital as early as Monday, after which he would continue treatment at the White House. At the same time, the US President’s schedule for Monday does not include any events with the participation of the American leader.
We will remind, last Friday morning, Trump said that together with his wife Melania went to quarantine in connection with the discovery of coronavirus at the adviser of the American leader Hope Hicks. Later, the head of the White House tested positive for the coronavirus. In this regard, Trump’s campaign headquarters announced the cancellation of all campaign events with Trump’s participation. In the evening, Trump was injected with a cocktail of antibodies against the coronavirus, and on Saturday night he was hospitalized at a military medical center in Maryland. The doctors decided to start treatment with Remdesivir.
Later it was reported that the American leader received oxygen support before hospitalization. On Sunday, the White House acknowledged that Trump had experienced a dramatic drop in oxygen saturation prior to hospitalization.
