PHOENIX (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he would test for the coronavirus before the next presidential debate with Democratic candidate Joe Biden this week.
“Sure I would have no problem with that,” Trump told reporters when he was asked whether he would be tested before Thursday’s debate in Nashville.
Trump announced on Oct. 2 that he had tested positive for COVID-19, and has declined to say when he last tested negative before the previous debate held on Sept. 29.
