Vice President of the United States Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence recorded a negative result on the last coronavirus test done this morning, hours after they found infections of the country’s President, Donald Trump, and his wife and First Lady Melania Trump.
“As has been routine for months, Vice President Pence is being tested for coronavirus every day. The Vice President tested the second lady negative this morning. The Vice President is still in good health and wishes the Trumps recover well,” said Vice President press secretary Devin O’Malley on his Twitter account.
Pence is now a potential Trump successor in the event the coronavirus incapacitates the American president from fulfilling his obligations to command as provided for in the 25th amendment to the United States Constitution.
The Vice President last met Trump publicly on Monday during a meeting at the White House.
