Trump spent almost an hour in the bunker on Friday night, said an unnamed source who wished to remain anonymous.
An unnamed member of the Republican Party close to the White House said that Trump was quickly removed to the underground bunker due to the demonstrations in front of the White House, and that was confirmed by another official.
President Donald Trump said on May 30 that he will postpone until the fall a meeting of Group of 7 nations he had planned to hold next month at the White House despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. And he said he plans to invite Russia, Australia, South Korea and India as he again advocated for the group's expansion.

With the pact under threat, Turkey wants to see continuation of the Open Skies Treaty for global stability and security, the country's Foreign Ministry said on May 23.

Namely, Weijia Jiang, a CBS News correspondent from the White House, asked Trump why he sees the current crisis as an international competition, when more than 80.000 Americans have died.
