Trump Says First lady Melania Trump Tested Negative For Coronavirus
President Trump said Monday that first lady Melania Trump had tested negative for the novel coronavirus.
President Donald Trump first announced that the first lady had received a test during his remarks at a Monday evening White House coronavirus task force briefing with reporters. Asked by a reporter whether his wife had been tested, Trump said, “Yes,” and added that the first lady was “fine.”
The president insisted he got tested because of persistent inquiries from the media about his contact with people who had tested positive; the White House physician said that the president did not need to be tested because his contact with the individuals was limited and he exhibited no symptoms.
