President Donald Trump demonstrated that he could not have taken the coronavirus test on Monday when he was stumped by a reporter who asked him about it.
Last week, Trump declared that he had tested negative for the virus amid a pubic outcry because he has been around so many people who ended up testing positive, particularly at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
People didn’t exactly believe him, of course, especially since Trump lies and his White House physician has also lied for him. Trump even lied about how fast the results of the test would come in.
But Trump appeared to let the cat out of the bag on Monday during his press conference after a reporter asked him what the test for coronavirus is like.
“Not, not uh – something I want to do every day…you know, it’s a little bit of a — it’s a little bit of — good doctors in the White House, but it’s a test. It’s a test. It’s a medical test. Nothing pleasant about it,” Trump said.

In fact, the test is merely a swab test of the nasal passages or the back of the throat. It may not be pleasant, but Trump should have been able to describe the test if he had actually taken one.
Twitter users were certainly convinced Trump did not take the test, and added some mockery.

Should known when he said the written part was tough.

He didn’t take a test for coronavirus.
And he’s lying about the results.
He lies about EVERYTHING.

Did you see the look on his face when the admiral described the test in detail? He had no freaking clue!!!

Isn’t it just a swab test?
He for SURE didn’t take the test.

Maybe they did that for a laugh and told him it was testing for Coronavirus?

It’s clear he didn’t take a test involving a mucus swab. Because it’s basic stuff. Two seconds.

That settles it. Trump must take the test for real and he should be forced to take it on national television. Analysis and results should also be aired in real-time with the media present. That’s how untrustworthy Trump is, and it’s just plain sad.
