President Trump mentions that he will undergo virus test each day
As his personal valet tested positive for the deadly virus, U.S. President Donal Trump on Thursday mentioned that he would take the COVID-19 test each day.
A military aide of Mr. Trump, whom officials explained as a private valet, tested positive for the virus. In the Oval Office of the White House, Mr. Trump told the reporters “I have had very little contact, personal contact, with this gentleman. I know who he is. Good person. But I have had very little contact. (Vice President) Mike (Pence) has had very little contact with him. But Mike was tested and I was tested. We were both tested.”
In response to the questions, The President mentioned that he himself, the Vice President and other staff members of the White House will also be checked for virus every day. He further added, “I just had a test. In fact, I had one yesterday and one today, and it is negative. Mike just had a test and it is negative.”
Mr. Trump even mentioned “But they do the tests and it just shows you that the fallacy — it is what I have been saying — testing is not a perfect art. No matter what you do, testing is not a perfect art. So we test once a week. Now we are going to go testing once a day. But even when you test once a day, somebody could — something happens where they catch something,”
