Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

Trump's positive test came soon after the White House announced that senior aide Hope Hicks was infected after traveling with the president several times this week.
The Trumps plan to remain at the White House.
Several world leaders have had coronavirus including British prime minister Boris Johnson and even our own PM Justin Trudeau.
