In a statement released on Twitter, Trump wrote that Hope Hicks has been working very hard with them without even taking a small break. It’s terrible that he tested positive for Covid-19, and the First Lady and himself are now waiting for their test results. In the meantime, they will begin their quarantine process.
A few hours later, Trump released a tweet in which he reported that tonight, he and his wife tested positive for Covid-19.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
