October 5, 2020
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus, just days after one of his closest advisers who also had COVID-19 traveled with him aboard Air Force One.
Trump announced the diagnosis in a tweet early Friday morning:
On Friday afternoon, Dr. Sean Conley, physician to the president, said in a memo that Trump "remains fatigued but in good spirits." Later, CNN and the New York Times each reported that Trump had been battling a low-grade fever throughout the day.
