    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he is praying for a ‘quick and full recovery’ for President Donald Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, after the couple tested positive for Covid-19. During a campaign speech in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Biden said he received two coronavirus tests this morning, both of which were negative. He added: ‘My wife, Jill, and I pray that they’ll make a quick and full recovery. This is not a matter of politics. It’s a bracing reminder to all of us that we have to take this virus seriously.’ The president initially continued to carry out his duties under quarantine from the White House residence on Friday and was showing ‘mild symptoms’ of Covid-19, an official said, but was later moved to Walter Reed hospital
