US president Donald Trump had difficulty speaking at one point during his call-in interview on Fox News Thursday night, clearing his throat to the point of a stifled cough before pausing for several seconds.

Trump announced nearly a week ago (early Friday, October 2) that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19. Trump spent several days at Walter Reed Medical Center for testing and treatment due to the virus. 

On Thursday, Trump told Hannity that he was doing "great," but dodged questions about if he had recently tested negative for the test, saying he would be tested tomorrow.
