Donald Trump Tests Negative For COVID-19, Says ‘I’ll Kiss Everyone’ At Florida Rally
President Donald Trump is officially COVID-19 free.
His physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said in a memo the White House released Monday (Oct. 12th) that Donald Trump tested negative “on consecutive days” and is “not infectious to others.”
He didn’t elaborate and say which days Donald Trump tested negative. Trump’s press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, shared the memo on Twitter.
The negative testing came just in time for his campaign rally in Sanford, Florida. It’s safe to say he was feeling pretty confident about not exposing anyone to the virus and reportedly said:
“I’ll walk in there, I’ll kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful women … I’ll just give ya a big fat kiss.”
He also vowed:
“We are going to take whatever they gave me and we are going to distribute it to hospitals.”
The event marked his first rally since he and Melania Trump announced they tested positive on Oct. 2.
Donald Trump’s bout with COVID-19 led to the cancelation of the second presidential debate after he refused to participate in a virtual event.
“I am not going to do a virtual debate. I am not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That is not what debating’s all about, you sit behind a computer, that’s ridiculous. They cut you off whenever you want.”
“I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn’t have a debate. I think we were gonna have to follow very strict guidelines. Too many people have been infected. It’s a very serious problem, so I will be guided by the guidelines of the Cleveland Clinic and what the docs say is the right thing to do.”
While he later agreed to a virtual debate, the event was ultimately canceled.
