Trump Announces He Will Test Himself For COVID-19 After Being Called ‘Selfish’
Donald Trump was recently seen sharing space with a Brazilian press aide who was diagnosed with coronavirus, yet he has chosen not to test himself despite the constant travels and meetings with people.
On Friday, Trump appeared to have a change of mind after being pressed by reporters.
Speaking to the press during a Friday press conference, Trump was asked if he was being “selfish” by not testing himself.
“Are you being selfish by not getting tested and potentially exposing…”
“Well, I didn’t say I wasn’t going to be tested,” Trump interrupted.
“Are you going to be?” the reporter pressed.
“Most likely, yeah,” Trump said.
Take a look at his remarks below:
