White House physician says after an "in-depth discussion" Trump took some form of coronavirus testing, and he's negative.
Impeached U.S. President and noted pathological liar Donald John Trump, after coming into close contact with coronavirus last weekend, has tested negative for the contagion that causes the potentially deadly disease COVID-19, according to his physician who administered a test last night.
Seems worth noting that Trump's physician is not an M.D., as is customary, but a doctor of osteopathy.
Hope the negative results are and remain true — and that he remains in good health during the coronavirus pandemic.
But there's a long history of false statements to contend with.
And lots of weird missing facts and weasel words.
No word on when exactly the test was administered, precisely what test… the preliminary one that global epidemiologists and public health experts are using, or the confirming/secondary one? Lots of missing details.

Interesting—but hardly surprising—that so many people here instantly dismissed WH assurance that Trump Coronavirus test negative. Zero credibility, well earned, but nothing to cheer about. https://t.co/Fmk27g7zZB
