The US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania has tested positive for coronavirus and the couple has gone into quarantine at the White House just a month before the November 3rd presidential election.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” tweeted President Trump early Friday informing about the development.
It should be noted that President Trump testing positive for coronavirus at this time poses some serious challenges for his election campaign against the Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden as Trump will lose much of his remaining time in quarantine.
President Trump’s announcement regarding the development came shortly after he tweeted about Hope Hicks, one of his top advisors, testing positive for the coronavirus.
However, according to reports, the president’s physician has confirmed that he would be able to carry out his duties “without disruption” from the White House.
President Trump isn’t the first world leader to be tested positive for coronavirus. Previously, Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain and Preisdent Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil also tested positive for COVID-19.
Twitter has been trending with many wishing President Trump and the First Lady a speedy recovery while there are some people actually taking the time to post memes and making fun of him for not wearing a mask.
Here are some Twitter reactions with hashtag #TrumpHasCOVID:
However, despite President Trump complete disregard for a mask, there are some people who actually believe that President Trump was deliberately given the coronavirus at the presidential debate.
