Trump tests positive for coronavirus

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Trump tweeted the news out early Friday morning.

Thursday evening, he tweeted the news that his close advisor, Hope Hicks, had tested positive. It is not clear if he caught the virus from her.

Hicks had traveled Wednesday with the president to a campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota. She reportedly began feeling symptoms on the flight home from the rally Wednesday evening and was isolated from others on the plane.

Sean Conley, the president’s physician, released a statement that included the following:

The president and the first lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.

The White House Medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions. Rest assured I will expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments.

It is not yet clear whether others within the White House have tested positive. Barron Trump has tested negative.

Mrs. Trump also tweeted out the news.

Trump is 74 and overweight, and is therefore at elevated risk for complications from the disease.

Let’s all pray for him, the first lady, and our country.

  1. Father God, please heal the man You called to lead us, and his wife and family and allies. We implore You to restore him to full and perfect health. Protect him from all opposition and wickedness that would take advantage of him during this time, and place Your angels around him and those who stand with him to continue YOUR work that YOU, LORD GOD, have given Donald John Trump and his family, friends, and allies, to do in this time. Father God, we need him, and we thank YOU for seeing our needs and calling a new Cyrus to lead us according to YOUR direction. Amen

  2. This is terrible news! The Democrats are celebrating, no doubt. May President Trump and First Lady Melania have a quick recovery. The thought of what could happen doesn’t bear thinking about.
