President Trump said early Friday that he and the first lady had tested positive for the coronavirus.
“We will get through this TOGETHER!”Trump’s positive test came just hours after the White House announced that senior aide Hope Hicks, one of the president’s closest advisors, had tested positive Thursday after several days of traveling with the president.
Shortly after Trump’s shocking tweet, the White House appeared to cancel the president’s rally in Orlando, Fla., on Friday night, removing it from an updated schedule.
And Trump’s positive test could force several senior campaign and White House aides into quarantine with just more than a month left before the election.
Among them: Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Tiffany Trump, Lara Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and the first lady.
