U.S. President Donald Trump said Saturday he took the test for coronavirus.

“I also took the test last night,” Trump told reporters at a White House briefing. “I decided I should based on the press conference yesterday. People were asking that I take the test.”

He said the test has been sent to a lab and the result is due in “a day, or two days”.
