President Trump on Sunday night wished a speedy recovery to President-elect Joe Biden, who fractured his foot while playing with his dog over the weekend.
“Get well soon!” Trump tweeted, along with a video of Biden leaving an orthopedic office in Delaware earlier in the day.
Biden’s doctors said Sunday night the president-elect will need to wear a walking boot for several weeks as a result of the injury sustained on Saturday.
The 78-year-old Democrat reportedly slipped while playing with his German Shepherd, Major.
Initial X-rays showed “no obvious fracture,” but a CT scan later Sunday revealed “hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot,” according to a statement from his doctor Kevin O’Connor.
“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor said.
