“I Don’t Think About Him,” Biden Said in Response to Reports That Trump Tested Positive for Covid Before Their Debate

Recently after his statement on the economy, Biden was asked if former Donald Trump had tested positive prior to their first 2020 presidential debate.

Initially, Mark Meadows, the former chief of staff to President Donald Trump, had written about the positive test result of Trump for the first time in his book.

“Mark Meadows has written a book revealing that President Trump tested positive for COVID a few days before your first debate,” Biden was asked by ABC News’ Mary Bruce after the President’s statement on the economy and supply chain.

“Do you think the former president put you at risk?” ABC News’ reporter questioned the President.

After a pause which was followed with a smile, Biden replied: “I don’t think about the former president. Thank you.”

A reporter yelled a follow-up question asking if Biden was aware that Trump had tested positive, but Biden waved goodbye to the assembled journalists and walked away.

The former White House chief of staff, who served as Trump’s final White House chief of staff, recently shared his book titled “The Chief’s Chief,” that revealed Trump tested positive for COVID-19 on September 26, three days prior to Biden and Trump took part in a debate at Case Western University in Cleveland.

Meadows wrote that the former president seeming “tired” and possibly having a cold, even though he felt good enough to fly to a campaign rally in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

Down the line, Meadows was given some bad news.

“Stop the president from leaving,” White House physician Sean Conley instructed Meadows during Trump’s flight take off on Marine One.

“He just tested positive for Covid.,” Dr. Sean Conley added.

While on the plane, Trump took a second Binax test, which came back negative, Meadows said. But, as of when the first and second tests took place, it was not clear how long had passed.

The organizers of the debate on September 29 were never informed of the initial positive result.

In fact, Cleveland, Ohio debate participants were required to test negative 72 hours before the event.

On October 1, Trump tested positive for COVID again only four days after a celebration of Amy Coney Barrett, then-Supreme Court nominee, which turned into a COVID outbreak at the White House.

In response to the Guardian’s article, Trump called his former chief of staff “fake news” and denied having COVID-19 before the first debate.

Meanwhile, Meadows’ account was also confirmed by two other former Trump officials on Wednesday, according to The New York Times.

“The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News. In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate,” Trump told the New York Times.

Although, Trump’s subsequent claim that he didn’t have Corvid as “a test revealed” does not invalidate Meadows’ account that he had initially tested positive for COVID-19.
