The President & First Lady Test Positive For Covid


President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both have the coronavirus.

The President broke the news with a tweet -- at nearly 1 AM Friday in D.C. -- saying ... "Tonight @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER."

One of Trump's aides, Hope Hicks, tested positive and had been traveling on Air Force One with The President on his trip to the presidential debate in Cleveland and his rally in Minnesota.

The President has been in contact with numerous people, including Joe Biden on the debate stage, his Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, and, the treasury secretary who had a meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Vice President Pence has tested negative, but there's still a window of risk.

It's unclear how long Trump has been COVID positive, who gave the virus to whom, and did Trump contract the virus from Hope Hicks?

A large number of people will need to be tested immediately and quarantined, but the

President and First Lady will remain in the White House under quarantine.
