    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has said that US President Donald Trump's condition continued to improve overnight, adding that the president could be able to leave the hospital and return to the White House later in the day.

    A caravan of more than 100 vehicles blocked New York's 5th Avenue on Sunday to express support for US President Donald Trump, who has been treated for coronavirus symptoms since last Friday.

    A long line of cars, trucks and motorcycles halted the traffic on the avenue for at least 30 minutes, with the drivers constantly blowing horns and waving flags outside Trump Tower.

    "This is a serious situation — the leader of the free world is sick. The leader of the free world needs our support," an organiser of the rally said, calling on people to "send some good energy to President Trump."

    While eyewitnesses reported a big police presence at the scene, no arrests were made.

    “There were a lot of cops [but] there was no trouble. It was peaceful, no stress. Nobody was hassling anybody,” a local security guard said.
