President Trump announced in a tweet on Friday, October 2, that he and the first lady Melania have tested positive for the coronavirus.

“We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately”, he wrote. “We will get through this TOGETHER!”

The news came after Hope Hicks, one of Trump’s most senior advisers, flew with Trump on Air Force One several times this week and had tested positive.
