“We’re keeping … the entire Trump family in our thoughts.”
California Sen. Kamala Harris, who was selected by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as his running mate, and her husband, Doug Emhoff wished the First Family a speedy recovery earlier this morning after President Donald Trump tweeted that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Harris graduated from historically black Howard University in the nation’s capital.
“Doug and I join Joe Biden and Dr. Biden in wishing President Trump and the First Lady a full and speedy recovery,” Harris wrote in a tweet on Friday morning, according to The Los Angeles Times. “We’re keeping them and the entire Trump family in our thoughts.”
The LA Times also reported that Harris will continue her planned travel to Las Vegas on Friday for campaign events after not attending the first presidential debate in Cleveland. Both she and her husband tested negative for the coronavirus.
“Both Douglas Emhoff and I were tested for COVD-19 this morning and thankfully we tested negative,” Harris wrote on Twitter, adding, “This virus is still very much active across our country, please continue to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.”
In addition, Biden weighed in on Twitter, thanking everyone for their concerns about him, and whether he too tested positive for COVID-19. He and his wife Jill Biden both tested negative.
“Im happy to report that Jill and I have tested negative for COVID,” he wrote.
He continued, “Thank you to everyone for your messages of concern,” he said. “I hope this serves as a reminder: wear a mask, keep social distance, and wash your hands.
The president’s recent diagnosis will no doubt cast fresh uncertainty into the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.
But “We have a president that is not only on the job he will remain on the job,” Mark Meadows, chief of staff told reporters without a mask on Friday, adding he is in good spirits and very energetic.
