Donald Trump tells Joe Biden to 'get well soon' after President-elect suffers injury playing with his dog

DONALD TRUMP has told President-elect Joe Biden to "get well soon" after Mr Biden was injured playing with his dog recently.

It's understood that Biden injured his foot while playing a game of 'tug-of-war' with his rescue dog Major.

He was spotted leaving the office of an orthopaedist in Delaware on Sunday, after being diagnosed with a hairline fracture in his ankle.

It's also understood that he will have to wear a protective boot until the injury heals.

Mr Trump, perhaps surprisingly, chimed in to wish his political rival his best, telling him to "get well soon" in a tweet.

Some have suggested Trump's message was a sarcastic one and used to highlight Biden's fragility and old age, but the less-cynical types praised the President for what is some seldom seen compassion.

Dr Kevin O'Connor, who treated Mr Biden, said in a statement that the scans "confirmed hairline fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot.

"It's anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks."

Trump is still attempting to challenge the results of November's presidential election in the courts, but is running out of time before the Electoral College meets in two weeks to officially certify Biden's victory.
