It was announced that the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and the first lady Melania Trump tested positive for Coronavirus.
Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump took it to Twitter to announce they have both tested positive for Coronavirus last night. They have also released a statement that they will begin their quarantine and recovery process immediately for a safe recovery. Donald Trump also tweeted they will get through these difficult times together. A lot of the voters are seeing this news as a chance for Donald Trump to back down and cancel the debate or downplay the severity of Coronavirus.
The White House announced that the president and the first lady are currently feeling well and will remain at home in the White House during the quarantine period. Presidential physician Sean Conley said he expects Trump to continue to perform his duties smoothly during this time as well. Ongoing debated are however, under question.
The American president Donald Trump is 74 years old and overweight in a risk group that is more susceptible to complications from an infection. Most people have mild symptoms, but some people, especially those at risk, can also have complications and death. The president was last seen by reporters Thursday night while returning to the White House and he looked healthy. Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump will now have to cancel a number of pre-election rallies he has planned for the coming days. The White House has already canceled today’s pre-election rally in Florida. Confirmation of the infection with Trump could be an additional factor of destabilization in the already tense political climate ahead of the November US election, CNN reports.
U.S. First Lady Melania Trump has been quarantined after she and her husband, U.S. President Donald Trump, were confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus. As she pointed out, she and her husband feel good, and urged U.S. residents to exercise caution: “Together, we will overcome this.”
Trump’s close co-workers also infected
Trump and Melania had been in quarantine for several hours before, as Hope Hicks, a close associate of the US president, had also been confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus just hours before. In a telephone interview with Fox News, Trump said that even before the infection was confirmed in him, he and Melania spent a lot of time with Hope. He also said Hicks often wore a mask but still became infected. Trump anticipates that from one of the supporters. The American television network CNN reports that she has infected symptoms and is already in Washington.
