During his town hall on NBC News on Thursday night, President Donald Trump wouldn’t say when he last tested negative for COVID-19 before he contracted the virus earlier this month .
Trump said he takes coronavirus tests “all the time,” but not every day.” He claimed he “probably” took a test on the day of the first presidential debate on September 29, but he couldn’t say for sure.
“Possibly I did, possibly I didn’t,” Trump said. He insisted that he didn’t feel ill during the debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and was “in great shape.”
The White House says Trump first tested positive for the coronavirus on the evening of Thursday, October 1, two days after the debate. He subsequently spent four days hospitalised at Walter Reed Medical Center.
