Kate Garraway has slammed Donald Trump after he temporarily left hospital to greet his supporters.

The President of the United States, 74, announced he had tested positive for coronavirus last week and was soon admitted to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington.

However, he shocked the world on Sunday night when he left the hospital to drive past his fans, waving to them from the window of his car.

Although he was wearing a mask, Trump was slammed for sharing the vehicle with two of his aides when he has tested positive for the deadly bug.

Kate, 53, opened up on her frustrations as her husband Derek Draper has not been able to see his children or parents, despite no longer testing positive for the virus.

Speaking on ITV breakfast show Good Morning Britain on Monday morning, Kate hit out at the President, saying she thinks Derek "could have real benefits" from seeing his children.

When asked how she felt about Trump's drive-by greeting, she said to hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "It is just extraordinary isn't it?"

She continued: "Derek still hasn't been allowed, even though he is no longer testing positive for the virus, his children can't visit.

"His mum and dad haven't seen him, you know. And I personally believe that, actually, him having contact like that could possibly be a great benefit.

"There are children that have died with their mums and dads not being allowed to see them. So why does he think it's more important for him to get in that car?"

Speaking over Piers, who tried to interject, Kate added: "If he'd shown that he was respecting the people around him and respecting the isolation, that would have been a heroic message, and that would have absolutely benefitted the whole country, and that's a shame that he didn't."
