Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, says Trump’s team has not briefed her on his health since his Covid-19 diagnosis.
Nancy Pelosi is the next in line to be president if Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence become incapacitated,
Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center undergoing treatment for covid-19.
His medical team moved him there last Friday, October 2nd.
In a news conference on Sunday, Trump’s doctors said the President has had at least two concerning drops in oxygen levels.
However, they maintained that he is getting better and be could be discharged as early as today.
Pelosi said the doctors treating Trump must provide trustworthy information to the American public.
“We have to have confidence in the judgment of the doctors who are treating him.
“That not only do they give a presentation, notice, when they give a presentation to the press, it has to be approved by the President,” she said.
“That’s not very scientific.”
She then revealed she wasn’t getting updates about Trump’s health status.
“We’re getting our information the way everyone else is. In the media,” Pelosi said during a CBS interview.
“But in terms of the succession, that’s an ongoing process. Sadly at this time, it comes to the forefront.”
Pelosi, who tested negative for Covid-19 on Friday, added that she’s praying for Trumps “good health” and a “speedy recovery”.
She added that she hopes the episode will serve as “a signal that we really have to do better in preventing the spread of this virus.”
