Early Friday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus. The results came after a top White House staffer Hope Hicks tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. Trump tweeted, "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!" Melania tweeted she was "feeling good" and she had "postponed all upcoming engagements."
