President Joe Biden reassured the public he was doing “fine” via Twitter in his first comments since testing positive for COVID-19, presenting himself as “keeping busy” despite the virus.

The 79-year-old president had to scrap a planned trip to Pennsylvania to talk about police funding and gun violence. He had planned to head to Florida on Monday, setting up a possible confrontation with Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential 2024 Republican rival.

“Folks, I’m doing great,” Biden tweeted. “Thanks for your concern.”
