Kanye West is “praying” for President Donald Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, as they both battle coronavirus.
The President of the United States and his wife, Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday, and rapper Kanye – who has previously voiced his support for the controversial figurehead – has sent his well-wished to the pair, whilst insisting people need “civility” amid the health crisis.
“There’s a crying need for civility across the board. We need to and will come together in the name of Jesus,” said Kanye on Twitter.
“I’m praying for President Trump’s and Melania’s full recovery, just as I would for Joe and Jill Biden if they were stricken, as well as everyone else with Covid-19.”
Trump, 74, and his wife were diagnosed with coronavirus after a close aide of the President was found to be carrying the virus.
The President was moved to Walter Reed Medical Centre on the advice of his doctors, and is said to already be “doing very well”.
An official at the White House had previously said moving Trump to hospital was “precautionary”, but claimed the President will stay in the medical centre “for a few days”, where his condition will be closely monitored.
The White House released a statement saying: “Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days.”
