The White House said the decision to transport him to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was taken “out of an abundance of caution”.
Mr Trump – who had a fever – said early on Friday he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for Covid-19.
The White House said he was feeling “fatigued but in good spirits” and was experiencing mild symptoms.
The news comes just over a month before presidential elections, where he will face Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
Wearing a mask and suit, Mr Trump walked out across the White House lawn on Friday afternoon to his helicopter, Marine One, for the short trip to hospital.
He waved and gave a thumbs-up to reporters but said nothing before boarding the aircraft.
In a video posted to Twitter, Mr Trump said: “I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support. I’m going to Walter Reed hospital. I think I’m doing very well.
“But we’re going to make sure that things work out. The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much, I appreciate it, I will never forget it – thank you.”
