The president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) alongside his wife, Melania Trump.
The president made this known via his active twitter page as he stated that he was in quarantine with his wife.
One of Trump’s closest advisers, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for the disease prompting the president’s isolation and test.
In a Tweet, Trump said he and Melania would “get through this together”.
Hicks travels regularly with the president on Air Force One and, along with other senior aides, accompanied him to Cleveland for the first presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden on Tuesday.
She was also with Trump at a campaign event in Minnesota on Wednesday and flew back to the White House with him on the Marine One helicopter after the rally.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
