Trump says he has been tested for coronavirus, expects results within days

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said that he took a test Friday to determine whether he has the coronavirus and will have the results within a few days.

“I also took the test,” Trump said during a press conference at the White House Saturday. “They sent it to a lab,” he added, saying it usually takes a day or two for the results to come back from the lab.

Trump had been repeatedly criticized for refusing to get tested for the virus after it was reported that he was in close contact with multiple people at his Mar-a-Lago result in Florida who had tested positive for the coronavirus.
