    Joe Biden says President Donald Trump testing positive for coronavirus is a “bracing reminder” of the seriousness of the virus. He also says he’s received two coronavirus tests, and both came back negative. Speaking at an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Biden said he received a test in Delaware and one from “the former White House doctor” who came up to Delaware to administer the test, “and everything’s clear.” The president said early Friday that he and his wife, Melania Trump, tested positive for coronavirus. Biden was tested after spending nearly 90 minutes onstage with the president during their debate earlier this week. Biden said he wished the president and the First Lady a full recovery and that “this is not a matter of politics.” Biden said it was a “reminder to all of us that we have to take this virus seriously. It is not going away automatically.” “This cannot be a partisan moment,” he said. “It must be an American moment. We have to come together as a nation. I’m running as a Democrat. But I will run and govern as an American president. Whether you voted for me or against me, I will represent you.” Biden delivered the entirety of his remarks wearing a mask.
