President Trump has been tested for Coronavirus and the results came back negative.
He explained during a press conference that he got tested after being repeatedly asked by the media if he would do it.
FOX News reports:
Trump tests negative for coronavirus, White House physician says
President Trump’s coronavirus test came back negative, meaning he does not have the virus, according to the White House physician.
“Last night after an in-depth discussion with the President regrading COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed,” Dr. Sean Conley said in a release. “This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative.”
“One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free,” he added. “I have been in daily contact with the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation.”
Trump had revealed earlier Saturday that he took the coronavirus test and was awaiting the results.

This video report from ABC News confirms the test results:
As usual, nothing is good enough for the media:
Q: why did @realDonaldTrump take the Coronavirus test when his dr put out a statement last night saying it was not necessary?
Q: why did they announce Google tool and drive in tests when it isn’t happening other than a trial in Bay Area?
