“In response to your inquiry regarding the President’s most recent COVID-19 tests, I can share with you that he has tested NEGATIVE, on consecutive days, using the Abbott BinaxNOW antigen card,” Conley wrote in his official statement. “It is important to note that this test was not used in isolation for the determination of the President’s current negative status.”

“Repeatedly negative antigen tests, taken in context with additional clinical and laboratory data, including viral load, subgeneric RNA, and PCR style threshold measurements, as well as an ongoing assessment of viral culture data, all indicate a lack of detectable viral replication,” Dr. Conley further elaborates.
Donald Trump: Feels so powerful
Firstly, the President himself expressed his relief and unbridled joy after testing negative for COVID-19.
Trump said, “Now they say I’m immune. I just feel so powerful.”
“I’ll kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful women and the… I’ll just give you a big, fat kiss,” he continued.
However, Trump also further expresses that he was in great shape and that he was not an “old person,” calling the people who criticize this statement as “sickest of them all.”
Lastly, in an exclusive interview with the host Maria Bartiromo, Trump had claimed that he was immune to the virus.
“Yes, and not only that. It seems like I’m immune, so I can go way out of a basement, which I would have done anyway,” Trump told Bartiromo, according to Fox News.
What does this mean for US Election?
On trailing behind his democratic rival Joe Biden in the run-up to the November 3 elections, the US president also says that this is the most critical election in the United States’ history.
“This is perhaps, one of the most important elections in the whole history of our country. And I used to say it in 2016. I’m sorry at the time. I thought it was, and these people are crazy. We have to win,” Trump said in his address to thousands of supporters.
“Most important we’ve ever had. Biden has made a corrupt bargain in exchange for his party’s nomination. He’s handed control to the socialist, the Marxist, and the left-wing extremists. And you know that. And he’s got no strength left or any power left. He’s got nothing going,” he added.
