Trump, First Lady test positive for COVID-19

US: US President Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID -19 along with First Lady Melania Trump but is “well” and will continue to perform his duties while quarantined at the White House, his doctor said Friday.

Trump, who first announced the news of his positive test shortly before on Twitter, wrote: “We will get through this TOGETHER!” The White House canceled his planned campaign rally in the crucial swing state of Florida on Friday.

Just 32 days before the November 3 election against Democrat Joe Biden and behind in the polls, it also looked certain that Trump would have to cancel a slew of other trips scheduled for this weekend and next week. The shock news came right after one of Trump’s closest advisors, Hope Hicks, was reported Thursday to have come down with the virus.

Hicks traveled with Trump to Cleveland for his first debate with Biden on Tuesday. She was with him again for a campaign rally in Minnesota on Wednesday. - AFP
