Donald Trump and his wife have tested positive for coronavirus and after the results of their test came out.
The US president and his wife got tested for the virus after Trump’s close aid Hope Hicks tested positive earlier this week.
Hicks was seen travelling with the president multiple times during the last week and once her positive reports came out, the couple out of an abundance of caution went ahead and got tested.
The president revealed that he and his wife Melania Trump has tested positive for Coronavirus via a tweet:
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2020
Trump’s physician also released a statement once the test reports came out:
The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence,” Conley wrote.
“The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions,” Conley wrote
“Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any further developments,” he wrote.
