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!

    I don't wish death on anyone either, but I think Trump burned so many bridges that there is no way that,

    > I remember a time when the president of the US being ill or injured was a time when the country pulled together in support. (e.g. Kennedy: assassination; Nixon: phlebitis; Ford: assassination attempts)

    ...will ever happen.

    The most good that can come of this would be if Trump had a bit of a rough time, and he and his supporters started taking the risk of COVID seriously. But, to wish that on even a horrible nasty person like Trump would make the wisher pretty terrible too. But, I fear if Trump sails through this, that it will only encourage more irresponsibility on his and his supporters parts.

    Damned if you have a conscious and you do wish harm, and damned if you don't wish harm as the body count in the US mounts.
