Covid-19: Trump ‘doing very well’ in hospital
Trump’s Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, and Biden’s running-mate, Kamala Harris, said on Friday they had both tested negative for Covid-19. Both wished Trump and his wife Melania well.
The Democratic campaign has moved to take down all its negative ads regarding Trump temporarily, but election campaigning has continued. Harris addressed a mobilisation drive-in event in Las Vegas, Nevada, overnight, while Biden campaigned in Grand Rapids, Michigan, earlier on Friday.
CBS reports that Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon has emailed campaign staffers across the country to reassure them that precautions will be taken with Biden, 77, and Harris, 55, travelling.
The next key event for the race falls on Thursday when Harris is due to debate Trump’s running-mate, Vice-President Mike Pence, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
