‘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.

‘Michelle and I are hopeful that they and others that have been affected by COVID-19 around the country are getting the care that they need, that they are going to be on the path to a speedy recovery, and it’s important I think for all of us to remember that even when we’re in the midst of big political battles with issues that have a lot at stake, that we’re all Americans and we’re all human beings, and we want to make sure everybody is healthy.

‘Michelle and I want to make sure we acknowledge the president and the first lady at this difficult time.’

In the same vien, Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris said she and her husband, Doug Emhoff, share their ‘deepest prayers’ for the Trumps.

‘Let it be a reminder to all of us that we must remain vigilant and take care of ourselves and take care of each other,’ she said.
