United States President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, have tested positive for coronavirus, marking yet another severe episode of the pandemic.
The president and his wife tested positive on Friday shortly after he confirmed that one of his top campaign officials, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for the virus.
Mr. Trump said he quickly went into quarantine with his wife, but he returned shortly to confirm he has tested positive himself.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
