American President, Donald Trump has announced that he and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for Coronavirus.
Recall that for months, Mr. Trump refused to wear a mask in public.
Also, the President on a few occasions repeatedly questioned their effectiveness while mocking Mr. Biden for wearing one.
Now, Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the Coronavirus.
In a tweet shared on Friday morning, Trump wrote;
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

The announcement came after Hope Hicks, one of the president’s closest senior advisers tested positive for the virus on Thursday, October 1.
In a memo issued to reporters around 1 a.m. ET, the President’s physician, Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley, wrote he received confirmation of the positive tests on Thursday evening.
“The president and first lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
“Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments.”
Meanwhile, after announcing the President’s diagnosis, the White House issued a new schedule to reflect several canceled events, including a fundraiser in Washington and a campaign rally in Florida.
