Supporters of Donald Trump have gathered with placards and flowers outside the Walter Reed National Military Hospital near Washington where the president is being treated for coronavirus, and across the United States.

Mr Trump's positive Covid-19 diagnosis was made public early on Friday, and that evening he was transported to the hospital for treatment.
