They took him from the White House, which has medical facilities available, to a hospital... Not sure how much I buy "mild symptoms".

Not sure how well they can quarantine them in the WH. Is Melania still there? They probably don't want it potentially spreading throughout there if they don't have to. There is also the fact that he's the Prez, plus at higher risk due to his age, so in general they are going to be extra cautious. The fact it's crunch time in an election on top of it. Last thing Trump wants is to be locked down any longer than he has to. The sooner he can get healthy the better, period. For anyone potentially thinking whether it may be a political ploy, going to a hospital helps legitimize the illness.

Could certainly be more serious to some degree though. Wonder how long before we truly find out if ever?

Why couldn't they quarantine in the Whitehouse? I'm assuming they have ways to keep people isolated there. I'm not sure I follow. 

I don't think it's a ploy, because I don't think this helps him politically. But, I think he doesn't want to project what he sees as weakness.

Based on what I'm seeing, I think it's bad.

Ivanka's statement to me doesn't seem to be indicative of something mild

"You are a warrior and will beat this. I love you dad."

Same for Eric.

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."

I couldn't find the pictures, but the look in Ivanka's eyes when they were taking him (to be fair it might have been out of context) looked very scared.

Then there's experimental treatments being done on a 74 year old man in a key position. The fact that they already said he'd be there for a few days.

I don't have any more information than anyone else, but my read is that this is a serious health risk. I am guessing that by the end of the weekend Mike Pence will be handling Preisdential duties.
