Asked by Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night if he’d tested negative for coronavirus yet, President Trump refused to answer, telling Hannity instead, “I took this Regeneron, it’s phenomenal. Eli Lilly has something very comparable, it’s phenomenal, and it’s all a new day, it’s all, and if you go back a few months, nobody ever even thought about this stuff we came up with it.”
Trump continued, “And I’m going to have it delivered to every hospital — we have sick people with the COVID, or the China virus as we call it, and we’re going to make people better. It actually made me better. I went in, I could have left a day later, I’m telling you, Sean was incredible. So that’s Regeneron but, again, Eli Lilly has something similar, and the kind of things we’re coming up with now are incredible, Remdesivir, but it’s a little bit different, works much differently, actually, but these are things that are absolutely incredible.”
Trump went on to suggest, “I think I’m going to try doing a rally on Saturday night if we can, if we have enough time to put it together, but we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in Florida on Saturday night, might come back and do one in Pennsylvania, on the following night.”
Pressed by Hannity if he’d tested negative, Trump said, “Well, what we’re doing is probably, the test will be tomorrow, and the actual test, because there’s no reason to test all the time, but they found very little infection or virus, if any, I don’t know that they found any, I didn’t go into it greatly with the doctors.”
It was not clear whether Trump understood which tests he would be getting or what they would mean.
