Conley’s comments were included in a memo to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and noted the results are based on the findings of the Abbott BinaxNOW antigen card.

Conley did not specify in the memo on which consecutive days Trump tested negative for the novel coronavirus, and he clarified that the negative tests are only one of several factors being considered by the president’s medical team to determine he “is not infectious to others.”

McEnany shared the memo from Conley as Trump was en route to his first post-diagnosis rally appearance, scheduled for Sanford, Florida, Monday night.
