During a press conference on Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he might finally undergo a test for COVID-19.
“I didn’t say I wasn’t going to be tested,” he told a reporter after she asked whether not taking a test was selfish, given that he had made contact with a Brazilian official who turned out to have the coronavirus.
“Are you going to be?” the reporter asked.
“Most likely, yeah,” Trump replied. “Not for that reason, but because I think I will do it anyway.”
He said he was “working out a schedule” to eventually release the results.
Besides the Brazilian official, Trump has also made contact with many conservatives who have had to self-quarantine after being exposed to a coronavirus patient at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) several weeks ago.
The White House has previously said that Trump does not need to be tested.
