- Despite their recent fierce confrontation at the US presidential debate, Joe Biden has sent a goodwill message to Donald Trump and his family
- President Trump and his spouse tested positive to the coronavirus on Friday, October 2
- Biden said he and his family will continue to include the US president and his wife in their prayers
Joe Biden, Democratic Party presidential hopeful in the forthcoming Unites States election, has sent a goodwill message to President Donald Trump and his wife Melania upon contracting Covid-19 infection.
In a tweet on Friday, October 2, Biden who is a former US vice president — having served as Barack Obama's deputy — said he and his wife Jill wished Trump and his partner a swift recovery.
The former vice president said he and his family would include Trump and his Melania in their prayers and continue to pray for their health and safety.
The 77-year-old former senator tweeted:
"Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family."
It would be recalled that the president of the United States announced on Friday that he and his wife have tested positive for coronavirus.
The US president revealed his health status on his verified Twitter page, saying he and Melania have begun their quarantine process.
Trump's Covid-19 status came on the heels of several conspiracy theories and counter-arguments on the existence and cure of the virus capped by open confrontation with China where the virus originated.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that it was a typically tensed atmosphere in Ohio as President Trump and Biden met face-to-face in their first presidential debate ahead of the United States election.
The debate, which was held in Cleaveland on Wednesday, September 29, was hosted and moderated by Fox New's Chris Wallace.
Surprisingly, President Trump pulled the stunts on both his opponent and the moderator in a bid to hold the spotlight from the historical matchup while Biden also fired back in a debate grossly characterised by personal attacks and name-callings.
