US President Donald Trump said early Friday he and First Lady Melania had tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!,” Trump tweeted.
Trump went into quarantine Thursday night after potential Covid-19 exposure, as more restrictions loomed in Europe in an attempt to contain the deadly pandemic.
Trump’s close White House aide Hope Hicks had tested positive earlier in the day.
Hicks was on board Air Force One with the president as he travelled to Cleveland, Ohio for the first presidential debate with his rival, Democrat Joe Biden, on Tuesday.
And she also joined Trump on his trip to a campaign stop in Minnesota on Wednesday.
