WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 05: U.S. President Donald Trump gestures upon return to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on October 05, 2020 in Washington, DC. Trump spent three days hospitalized for coronavirus.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump said he was unsure whether he received a coronavirus test on the day of the first presidential debate. It was required that both Trump and Democratic opponent Joe Biden would undergo COVID-19 testing prior to debating on stage.

When responding to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Trump said, “I don’t know. I don’t even remember.”

The president repeatedly stated, “possibly I did, possibly I didn’t” to the same question that was brought up multiple times.

The White House has refused to release details on Trump’s last negative COVID-19 test. Experts have said that the president’s negative test is vital in determining who Trump may have exposed to the virus and whether Trump was positive when he debated with Biden.
