President Trump seems to be suffering some short-term memory loss.
Both Trump and his White House team have repeatedly refused to reveal the last time Trump tested negative for COVID-19 before his positive test. Once again on Thursday during his town hall with NBC News, Trump wouldn't give moderator Savannah Guthrie an answer to that question — and wasn't even sure if he tested negative before debating Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
When Guthrie asked when Trump's last negative test was, Trump brushed it off by saying "I test quite a bit." But he affirmed that he isn't tested every day, and wasn't sure if the debate was one of the days he was tested. "I don't know. I don't even remember," he said. "You don’t know if you took a test the day of the debate?" Guthrie asked to clarify. "Possibly I did, possibly I didn't," Trump answered.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the virus just two days after the first presidential debate in late September. Moderator Chris Wallace said Trump's family and team weren't tested once they arrived at the debate, leading to questions over when they were last tested.
