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

A report from c|net adds:

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said in a memorandum late Thursday that the president and first lady were "both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence."

The announcement of the president and first lady's positive coronavirus test results came just hours after the revelation that top White House aide Hope Hicks had tested positive for the virus as well. The president indicated in an earlier tweet that he and the first lady had begun the quarantine process.

Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for Covid 19. Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!

    Pot meet kettle

    He also claimed Cruz’s dad was involved in the Kennedy assassination.

    What makes this all the worse is that Ted Cruz basically ruined his wife’s life by becoming a senator. She had a thriving career in DC and she was forced to give it up. It drove her into a deep state of depression as Cruz’s campaign was forced to admit. The cops found her disoriented and sitting with her head in her hands on the side of a busy Texas interstate. The cop on the scene felt she was a danger to herself. So, he let Trump insult the woman who gave up her own aspirations to support his dreams.

    By the way, do you know how we found out about this very sad and private tale ten years after it happened? Trump’s campaign released it to tabloids when they were feuding. He threatened to “spill the beans” about Heidi Cruz and so he did. So, Trump called her ugly and weaponized her suicidal ideation in a political campaign but Ted Cruz licks is taint. I would say Heidi Cruz should cut Ted’s balls off but, based on his behavior, she’d have to settle for stealing them from Trump’s desk.

    Hedging your bets by saying Trumo is an idiot as you do everyrhing you can to prop him up around here is.. disgusting. I can't wait to out this travesty behind us so Republicans can go back to pretending they are decent human beings.
