President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, he announced on Twitter early Friday.
Hope Hicks, one of the president’s closest senior advisers, tested positive for the virus Thursday, making her the highest-profile member of the administration to have contracted the virus who is in frequent contact with Trump and other top officials.
Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday that he and the first lady, 50, were tested once Hicks tested positive, and he later tweeted that they were starting the “Quarantine process.”
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted that he and his wife, Karen, “Send our love and prayers” to Trump and the first lady.
One of the president’s personal valets, who works in the West Wing serving him his meals, among other duties, tested positive in May.
While it is unknown where or when Trump contracted the illness, Trump has repeatedly expressed a lack of concern about getting sick from holding rallies or other events.
Trump is not the only world leader to have tested positive for the coronavirus.
