President Trump learned on Sunday that no foreign adversary was attempting to take advantage of his health situation during a national security briefing “around the world” that took place on a secure line after the president tested positive for the end of last week for COVID-19.

National Security Agency Advisor Robert O’Brien, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows were all on a teleconference video with Trump.

According to officials familiar with the call, however, foreign countries are closely monitoring Trump’s health situation, but there has been no strange military movement from foreign entities.

According to those on call, the president looked fine and there was nothing unusual about his physical demeanor or mental state.

Trump tested positive for COVID-19 last week and has since been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center, with medical staff hoping he will make a full recovery soon.

A senior administration official told Fox News that “the first indications are for a very good prognosis – but the next 48 hours will be crucial.”

Trump has so far received two doses of Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has been approved by the FDA to help treat the coronavirus

“If you look at the therapeutics I’m taking right now, some of them and others coming out soon that look like miracles,” Trump said in a video posted to his Twitter Saturday night.

He added: “I don’t know the next few days, I guess – it’s the real test so we’ll see what happened over the next couple of days. ”

As of Sunday evening, the new coronavirus sickened more than 7.4 million people in the United States and killed more than 209,000, according to statistics compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
