you know be operating in the white house the president of course also sent out a video message on twitter this afternoon saying that he's doing well the positive tests come after. president trump aide hope hicks tested positive. the virus has killed more than 205,000 americans and has now spread to the highest reaches of the u.s. government white house officials say that the hospital visit is precautionary this point in that. president trump will work from the hospital's presidential suite which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties. now with the president at least temporarily. >>out of the white house many people are wondering how things will operate there. we want to go now live to a professor erwin chemerinsky he is dean of berkeley law. >>and the professors here to answer that question. and the answer would be. welcome by the way. >>it's great to be with you in the question is. >>if the president is
temporarily out of how will things be operating in the white house. >>if the president is unable to perform the duties of office, the vice president takes over. the 25th amendment was added to the constitution to make very clear if the president is incapacitated vice president immediately takes over. >>obviously president trump been pretty bullish in describing his adoration of power in life in general and certainly in the white house so he's not going to be quick, you wouldn't think to relinquish power, especially if he believes he can fulfill his duties if the president was to decline. health wise. what would be the process of taking power from him should he not want to relinquish it. >>the vice president and a majority of the cabinet can the president incapacitated can take over the duties of
the president the end of the vice president. now there's a process then with the president go to congress for the president override that. i think all of that is very unlikely. i think that if president trump can do the job. he's going to continue as president when he can't safe god forbid something happens where he's not able to perform vice president will take over. we also understand certainly the vice president has been in the he so far has tested. >>negative to the coronavirus but should he succumb to the coronavirus the next person in succession to take over is. nancy pelosi. our very own. so the speaker of the house is second in line. >>the speaker that's right it goes for the president to the vice president. if neither of them are able to perform the duties about this because to the speaker of the house of representatives nancy pelosi. >>would you be at all worried about how the white house will function if the president is
hospitalized and there is a disruption to the normal flow of the day in the white house. >>of course we have to be wary. this is the most serious illness that a president has faced probably since ronald reagan was shot in 1981. what eisenhower had a heart attack in the early 1950's. but this is a terrible virus has killed over 200,000 people. all we can do regardless of our political views so for president trump speedy recovery. >>because of your background in law and we will re missed i'm not addressing the senate if that were to for the confirmation hearings for judge amy coney barrett. where does this put things. >>i don't think it changes anything president trump has formally nominated judge amy coney barrett. the senate has decided they're going to forward hearings. likely the week after next the only thing that could change that is a significant number of senators
test positive then the senate may have to postpone it. we learned today for example, senator mike lee has tested positive is being quarantined. >>chuck schumer just tweeted a second senate judiciary committee member has tested positive. i'm honestly not sure who specifically that but schumer is saying that these hearings should be put on hold because of these 2 positive cases so is there a magic number in your mind for what constitutes too many people being infected. >>the republicans want to go forward as as possible and get her confirmed the democrats want to do everything they can to stop it and hope that joe biden winds it's about can fill. justice ginsburg seat, but the reality is the republicans are in control. so long as they have 49 votes. they mike pence to break the tie. though the okay. the democrats would need 4 senators not public centers not to be able to and we just
don't know yet if that's going to happen. >>all right a lot of thank you so much for joining us. professor erwin chemerinsky dean of berkeley law. take care. thank you. >>yeah, i temperatures expected to continue through the weekend another hot day as we look at what is being forecasted for tomorrow certainly the winds are a concern and the air quality as well want to go to kron 4 chief meteorologist lawrence karnow on when things are expected to cool off and. >>clear out yeah that's the thing too as we got all that smoke out there right now it's looking from the berkeley hills we've had the hot temperatures again today tomorrow. >>going to start to cool down a little bit i think it takes still sunday will receive more significant cooling and much better air quality unfortunately smoke continues to sit around most of the bay right now and without much wind to move it at this point there's no way to get it out a little bit better quality can see near the goal-line but you still see the haze in the
atmosphere generally get better quality out toward the coastal areas but that's what we're looking at right now you've got some very poor air in the live more in the san jose and oakland right now along the coastline doesn't look as bad as we head toward tomorrow. the forecast still calling for a lot of smoke in our skies and very poor air quality in the north bay and stretching in the east bay i think that will start the way that way in the morning but by the afternoon we're going to see more significant westerly component to the wind and that wind will start to move some of that smoke out of the bay area but i think it will take at least another couple of days before things look a whole lot better guys back to you. >>thank you. lawrence we're continuing to track the breaking news of course a live look here outside walter reed where president trump is inside being treated for covid-19 said to be experiencing shortness of breath tonight in addition to fever and fatigue you see some of his supporters there have
