“I took the test last night,” Trump said during a press conference on Saturday (March 14). “I decided I should based on the press conference yesterday, people were asking ‘Did I take the test?’”

He added that he does not know the results at this time as it has been sent to a lab. He also noted he had his temperature taken as he arrived to the press conference.

He was also asked why he keeps shaking hands with people on camera.

“It almost becomes a habit, and you get out of that habit,” Trump responded when he was asked why he keeps shaking people’s hands. “People come up to me, they shake hands. It’s sort of a natural reflex. And we’re all getting out of it. All of us have that problem.”

Trump did reportedly come into contact with two individuals who have coronavirus: the communications director for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and a guest at his diplomatic dinner in Palm Beach, Florida this past week.
