President Donald Trump is reportedly having trouble breathing, hours after being admitted to hospital for coronavirus.

Advisers to The President are believed to have said he is also experiencing fatigue, adding that his condition is "serious".

It comes hours after Donald Trump was airlifted to hospital via Marine One and was seen wearing a face mask as he departed the presidential helicopter.

CNN reported that a source close to the President said that there is "reason for concern about Trump's health tonight".

"'This is serious,' the source said.

They went on to describe Trump as very tired, very fatigued and having some trouble breathing."

It's believed that Trump's symptoms are worse than those of his wife, Melania.

Despite these claims, the White House earlier revealed that the President will recover from the virus and would continue to work from a remote suite at the Walter Reed Medical Centre.

Earlier reports suggested that the President was suffering from "mild symptoms" but was in "good spirts" as he was taken to a military hospital following the advice of top medical advisers.

Ahead of his departure from The White House, he took to social media to share a video updating his followers on his condition.

He said: "I think I'm doing very well, but we're going to make sure things work out.

"The First Lady is doing very well, thank you so much – I appreciate it and I will never forget it."

Trump confirmed his diagnosis during the early hours of Friday morning after one of his top aides, Hope Hicks, tested positive.

Announcing his test results on Twitter, the hotelier said: "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!"

Hope, who serves as counsellor to the President flew across the United States with Trump and his presidential campaign team onboard both Air Force One and Marine Force One, without wearing a mask.

As a precaution, Trump and First Lady, Melania, were instantly tested for the virus.
