The behavior of the American president is scrutinized with particular attention at a time when the number of people working in the White House (journalists included) declared positive continues to believe.
“The president wanted to be in the Oval Office yesterday (Tuesday), but he didn’t go and worked from the residence,” tweeted Ben Williamson, spokesperson for the president.
Minutes earlier, his economic adviser Larry Kudlow had said on CNBC that Donald Trump had “shown up in the Oval Office yesterday (Tuesday) taking maximum precautions regarding COVID-19.”
The White House said preparations were underway to allow the president to find the famous office in the coming days.

Trump calls Biden a ‘nutcase’
US President Donald Trump, lagging behind in the polls with less than a month before the presidential election, called his Democratic opponent Joe Biden a “nut” on Wednesday.
“He’s been a nutcase for years and everyone knows that,” the US president tweeted.
“The media get stuck with him and just try to protect him,” he added. “Did you notice how all the negative things, like her very low IQ, are never mentioned again?” Fake News! ”
For several days, the tenant of the White House has multiplied angry tweets.
“The Fake News media (…) only want to talk about COVID-19,” he thundered Tuesday in a message written from the White House, which he found Monday evening after three days of hospitalization.
