President Biden had to pause for bouts of coughing during a public appearance at the White House Tuesday despite testing negative for COVID-19 over the weekend following his “rebound” infection.

Mr. Biden, 79, interrupted his speech on the South Lawn during the signing ceremony for Congress’ $280 semiconductor bill with several coughing fits, and paused at one point to sip water to clear his throat.

“Excuse me, I’m sorry,” Mr. Biden told the crowd gathered for the event. “I’m going to take another sip of water.”

Mr. Biden was also seen blowing his nose as members of Congress gathered to witness him sign the legislation into law.
