Trump and the 25th amendment - if he is infected and symptomatic, what will he do

Given the president’s cavalier attitude toward his risk of becoming infected by the coronavirus via handshakes, this is important.

From Politico (via Roving Reporter Sherry): Now Trump Really Needs to Talk About the 25th Amendment. If the president gets seriously ill, the Constitution has a plan for that. But what if the president stands in the way.

BTW: This afternoon (Friday) Trump shirked off taking responsibility for the delays quite possibly caused by his killing our global health expertise. Now he keeps saying he has no symptoms. That is not diagnostic. The virus can infect the host in the absence of symptoms. So why would this guy not prevent a transfer of power to the VP per the 25th Amendment?
