Former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are sending their best wishes to Donald and Melania Trump after the president announced he and his wife tested positive to novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Clinton, 74, posted on Twitter late Friday wishing the Trumps and all those exposed to the potentially deadly virus a speedy recovery.

“We wish the President and First Lady a speedy recovery, and hope for the safety of the White House staff, the Secret Service, and others putting their lives on the line. This pandemic has affected so many. We must continue to protect ourselves, our families, and communities,” Clinton wrote.

On Friday, as Trump underwent a dramatic turn of health, Barack spoke supportively of the president’s personal health.

“Michelle and I want to make sure that we acknowledge the president and the first lady at this difficult time,” Barack reportedly added.

Barack said he and former first lady Michelle Obama hope the president and others infected by COVID-19 “are getting the care they need.”

“Although we’re in the midst of a big political fight, and we take that very seriously, we also want to extend our best wishes to the president of the United States, the First Lady,” Barack, 59, reportedly said during a virtual fundraising event with Democratic running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, and actor Michael B. Jordan.
