The president has made a fool of himself again during a Saturday press conference Mike Pence was holding. Trump has faced immense backlash over his mishandling of the COVID-19 virus, and now, he’s seemingly obsessed with anything to do with the coronavirus. Trump tweets about the virus daily, and on Friday, he refused to take responsibility for the pathogen’s spread.
Pence’s Saturday press conference started off with a bang, as Pence was seemingly nowhere in sight. But Trump was there, donning a blue “USA” hat, because apparently that’s his only evidence that he even likes this country.
Check out the conference below:
During the press event, Trump admitted that he had been tested for coronavirus.
“I also took the test last night. I decided I should based on the press conference yesterday, people were asking that I take the test.”
The Surgeon General should be ashamed-what about his oath? Americans know the lies, the bickering, the partisanship, the finger-pointing ("it's Obama's fault") all come from Trump. Come November, let's put the blame where it's due. Enough of this. https://t.co/kwdxmLLSnG

Trump’s physician Sean Conley said this:
“The President’s exposure to the first individual was extremely limited (photograph, handshake), and though he spent more time in close proximity to the second case, all interactions occurred before any symptom onset. These interactions would be categorized as LOW risk for transmission per CDC guidelines, and as such, there is no indication for home quarantine at this time.”

“Additionally, given the president himself remains without symptoms, testing for COVID-19 is not currently indicated.”
