Trump urges Biden to "get well soon" after breaking his foot while playing with his dog Major


President Donald Trump told Joe Biden on Sunday evening that he should "get well soon" after the president-elect broke his ankle while playing with his German Shepherd Major.

Biden sustained the injury Saturday and visited an orthopedic surgeon at Delaware Orthopedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware for an investigation Sunday afternoon, his office said.

As Biden, who will likely be wearing hiking boots for several weeks, was preparing to leave the doctor's office, he was photographed by NBC News getting into a vehicle.

Trump later retweeted the NBC video and surprisingly wrote to Biden: "Get well soon!"

First of all, Dr. Kevin O & # 39; Connor, Biden has sprained his right foot and there is no obvious break.

A subsequent CT scan "confirmed (small) hair fractures of the lateral and intermediate sphenoid bones of President-elect Biden, which are located in the middle of the foot," according to a statement by O'Connor.

"It is expected that he will likely need hiking boots for several weeks," added O & # 39; Conner.

Biden's office said he was taken to the doctor "out of caution".

Reporters covering the elected president were not given the opportunity to see Biden enter the doctor's office despite multiple requests.

The pictures showed Biden's motorcade arriving at the orthopedic surgeon's office in Delaware on Sunday afternoon and departing on Sunday evening.

Biden was playing with Major, one of the Bidens' two dogs, when he sprained his ankle.

The Bidens adopted Major in 2018 and acquired their first dog, Champ, after the 2008 election.

Biden officials said Major will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House.

The Bidens have said they are bringing their dogs to the White House and they also plan to have a cat.

Shortly after Biden visited the doctor, the Instagram fan page for Biden's dogs, @first_dogs_usa, shared an "apology" from Major and an "official" statement.

& # 39; paw my god! Dad @JoeBiden, I'm so sorry I pulled super hard when we used to play tug of war. I am still a puppy and very energetic. I am so sorry that you sprained your ankle because of me, ”the post says.

“I want to make up for it with a lot of kisses. I'll be fine, I paw. "

In addition to the post, the report issued a 41-bark statement that was reflected in the following: “I wish my adoptive father a speedy recovery, but I insist that I did nothing wrong.

"I look forward to the Secret Service investigation that I expect to confirm that I am a very good boy."

At 78, Biden will be the oldest president when he is inaugurated in January, but he has often turned down questions about his age in the campaign.

In December, he published a medical report that revealed he was taking a statin to keep his cholesterol at healthy levels. However, his doctor described him as "healthy, strong" and "capable of successfully performing the duties of the presidency".
