President Trump and Vice President Pence arrive for a campaign rally at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport in Newport News, Va., on September 25 - several days before Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Melania Trump said she was "feeling good" and "hoping for speedy recovery". Pence would then assume charge as "acting president".

There is also a historical precedent for such a move although only for a short period of times.

Section 3 of the 25th Amendment allows the president to submit, in writing, that he is not able to discharge the powers of the office. The president is technically obese through his body-mass index.

Section 3 was invoked under President Ronald Reagan when he underwent a colonoscopy, and twice under President George W. Bush when he underwent colonoscopies.
