Kanye West is sending positive vibes to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as they undergo treatment for COVID-19.

West, who is running against Trump in the upcoming presidential election, took to Twitter on Saturday morning (Oct. 3) to express his concern for the president and first lady after news broke early Friday that they were diagnosed with coronavirus.

"There’s a crying need for civility across the board. We need to and will come together in the name of Jesus," West wrote. "I’m praying for President Trump’s and Melania’s full recovery, just as I would for Joe and Jill Biden if they were stricken, as well as everyone else with COVID-19."

Kanye was among many celebs who reacted to the news that the Trumps had tested positive for the disease. The rapper was joined by Cardi B, Todrick Hall, Sara Bareilles, Ice-T, 50 Cent, Josh Gad and a number of other artists who shared their thoughts about the diagnosis, along with Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who wished the president and first lady a speedy recovery.
