United States launch Pentagon's airborne nuclear command posts as Trump tests positive for Covid-19

One E-6B Mercury plane has been launched on each the west and the east of the American coasts shortly before President Donald Trump announced that he has been tested positive for Covid-19.

The planes are airborne nuclear command posts for the Pentagon that carry special communication systems and crews that command the nuclear ballistic-missile submarine fleet of the United States.

Tim Hogan, an open-source intelligence practitioner from the United States has tweeted that he "would expect them to pup up if he [Trump] tests positive". The airplanes could be tracked via public software only because the military crews did not turn off the transponders.
