First lady Melania Trump tested negative for coronavirus, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told CNN Monday. Mrs. Trump got tested the same night as the President was tested, out of an abundance of caution. The test was negative,” Grisham said.
President Donald Trump first announced that the first lady had received a test during his remarks at a Monday evening White House coronavirus task force briefing with reporters.
Asked by a reporter whether his wife had been tested, Trump said, “Yes,” and added that the first lady was “fine.” The President and first lady were tested at the White House on March 13, more than one week ago.
