(WFRV) – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says he and his wife, Jill, have tested negative for coronavirus.
The Bidens were tested for the virus after President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were diagnosed with COVID-19.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers sent his well wishes to the Trumps, saying “Kathy and I are sending our best wishes to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump in their recovery.”
Pres. Trump was scheduled to visit Janesville and Green Bay on Saturday.
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted early Friday, saying,
“Karen and I send our love and prayers to our dear friends President @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS Melania Trump. We join millions across America praying for their full and swift recovery. God bless you President Trump & our wonderful First Lady Melania.”
Both VP Pence and his wife tested negative for coronavirus on Friday.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, both reacted to the news Friday morning.
“Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery,” Biden tweeted. “We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.”
The Associated Press reports Pres. Trump is experiencing mild symptoms since testing positive but is expected to continue carrying out his duties “without disruption” while recovering. A White House official said Friday morning that the president was working from the White House residence.
