President Trump, First Lady Test Positive for Coronavirus
At about 1:00 Friday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that he and Melania Trump have 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!

Earlier in the day Thursday, White House adviser Hope Hicks, who had been traveling recently with Trump and attended a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, tested positive for the coronavirus. Subsequently Trump announced that he and the first lady would be quarantining themselves and getting tested.
A note from Trump’s physician confirms that the two tested positive for the virus, but it doesn’t indicate whether either or them have developed any symptoms of illness:
Obviously, there will be more to come.
