Given possible contagions of coronavirus from officials and representatives, President Donald Trump has been questioned about the possibility of having the corresponding test.
The Republican indicated that “there would be no reason”, but if necessary, it would have been done, at the insistence of reporters who reminded him that he was in contact with the representative Doug Collins (Georgia), who greeted him by hand last Friday when the president He travelled to Atlanta to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ).
The other was Rep. Matt Gaetz (Florida), who boarded Air Force One with President Trump on Monday on a flight from Orlando to Andrews Joint Base in Maryland.
Both Republicans are quarantined out of fear of being infected with Covid-19.
“Why isn’t the test done after he interacted with Matt Gaetz and Doug Collins last week?” He asked a reporter of the president.
“Well I don’t think it’s a big deal, I would,” he said. “I don’t feel any reason – I feel extremely good … But I think it’s a great thing to get tested .”
On Monday, when journalists questioned him about the test, the president fled the White House press room and Vice President Mike Pence said he did not know if the test would be done.
