Trump announces that he and Melania have coronavirus

In a tweet posted to his Twitter account this Thursday night, President Trump announced that he and his wife Melania have tested positive for coronavirus.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” he wrote.

Trump and the First Lady previously planned to quarantine after his confidant Hope Hicks tested positive for the virus after traveling with the President several times this week.
