President Donald Trump will visit the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta Friday afternoon after abruptly canceling a trip that was previously scheduled for Friday morning.
Trump told reporters the initial trip was canceled over a suspected coronavirus infection at the CDC itself, but said the person ultimately tested negative.”
They thought there was a problem at CDC with somebody that had the virus,” Trump told reporters. “It turned out negative so we are seeing if we can do it. They’ve tested the person fully and it was a negative test. So I may be going. We’re going to see if they can turn it around with Secret Service. We may be going.”
Three people had tested positive coronavirus in Georgia as of early Friday afternoon.
