President Trump said Monday that he spoke earlier in the day with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden about the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

Trump said Biden called him and that the two likely General Election nominees spoke for about 15 minutes. He also suggested the focus of the talk was about strategies to slow and stop the virus.

"We had a really wonderful, warm conversation," Trump said. “He gave me his point of view, and I fully understand that. It was very friendly."
