"Best wishes to a very good friend of mine and a friend to our nation, Prime Minister Boris Johnson", said President Trump in his opening remarks at the daily press conference at the White House. 

The U.S. president expressed his sadness that PM Johnson has been taken into intensive care this afternoon as his coronavirus symptoms worsened. The president reiterated the special friendship he has with the UK's Prime Minister by saying that Boris Johnson is "strong", "resolute" and someone who "never quits, never gives up".

President Trump said that the U.S. has made a  progress on therapeutics and that he asked the two of the leading drug companies that helped find treatments for AIDS and Ebola  to contact London, immediately.

"When you're brought into intensive care it gets very, very serious with this particular disease," said Trump in a somber tone. The president announced that the White House has been in contact with all of PM Johnson's doctors to see if America can be of help.  

"We are working with London with respect to Boris Johnson", the president concluded.

Later in the press conference, during the Q & A, Trump said that Boris Johnson is "such an incredible guy" and that it was shocking to see that he has been taken to the intensive care. "You know what that means, intensive care, there is a big deal with regard to what we are talking about. That's a very big deal. Very scary deal.", President Trump said.
