President Trump is planning to travel to Florida later this week.

During his trip on Friday, Trump will focus on drug trafficking in South America.

A White House official said Trump will visit the U.S. Southern Command in Doral for a briefing.

Doral is in Miami-Dade County, which is currently experiencing a huge coronavirus outbreak.

Miami-Dade County officials report the county has seen a 90% increase in the number of coronavirus patients being hospitalized in the past 13 days.
