WASHINGTON, D.C. – Both President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19.
The announcement came mere hours after Trump aide Hope Hicks was also diagnosed. It’s only the latest dramatic twist in a year – and an election – that has not wanted for surprises and drama.
Both Trumps took to Twitter to declare that the first couple and the country would “get through this together.”
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.
