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!

    Have you ever considered he does all of that and does care about people? He just doesn't value the same things you do.

    In fact, about half of the country does not have the same values as you. Look, I wish all of you communists that value equality over freedom would just go live in Venezuela but for some reason you all want to live in free market capitalist countries. It's a real puzzle.

    Because I was born here, and don't have rich parents, it's pretty damn hard to get out before I'm old. Moving across the globe ain't cheap.

    Venezuela is closer to the U.S. than any sort of "communist" anything. Just another authoritarian with the same rule book as all the others. Pity you can't see it in your own dictator wannabe.
