The United States President, Donald Trump and his wife Melania have both tested positive for the sprawling coronavirus.
Trump first announced this in a tweet early Friday morning that he and his wife Melania have both tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
“We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately,” he wrote. “We will get through this TOGETHER!”
The news came just hours after it was reported that Hope Hicks, a close adviser to Trump who traveled with him aboard Air Force One several times this week, had tested positive.
The president’s physician, Sean P. Conley, wrote later that Trump and his wife “are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.”
