Democratic presidential pick Joe Biden has removed negative political ads involving his opponent President Donald J. Trump as a direct response to his COVID-19 diagnosis. The news followed Trump's emergency airlift to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment.

The decision was made "before" the White House released word that Trump was going to Walter Reed, according to multiple sources.

Biden's campaign tweeted, "This cannot be a partisan moment. It must be an American moment. We have to come together as a nation."
