The Latest on the President’s Health

On Saturday morning, the doctors treating President Trump for the coronavirus held a news conference outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center — a show of strength, aimed at reassuring the American public that he was in capable hands.

But instead of allaying concern, it raised questions, casting doubt on the timeline of the president’s illness and the seriousness of his condition. Several times, fresh information has thrown up alternative accounts of the early hours of Mr. Trump’s illness that seem to counter the version offered by the White House.

We speak to Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, White House correspondents for The Times, about the efforts to control the narrative, and pick through what is known about the president’s condition a month before the election.

Guest:Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, White House correspondents for The New York Times.
