Trump couldn't say if he got Covid test on debate day
President Donald Trump admitted that he may not have taken a coronavirus test on the day of his debate with Joe Biden, even though he was required to do so by the Commission on Presidential Debates and tested positive for Covid-19 two days later.
He refused to say when his last negative test was before the debate and did not express any regret for the Rose Garden event that is now widely viewed as a "super-spreader" event, where attendees were not socially distanced and did not wear masks.
