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!

    Trump can repent as soon as he can humble himself.

    The ego runs strong in this one (Trump). He might not live long enough.

    Pay his words no heed for they are fleeting like the wind.

    "A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion." Proverbs 18:2 (ESV)

    "Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him." Proverbs 29:20 (ESV)

    But remember the Bible speaks to ALL of us:

    "2 [a] Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few." Ecclesiastes 5:2 (ESV)

    So even if you disagree with Trump, he may be part of God's plan (somehow). We can't alter God's plan, but we can make a mess of our own lives, and displease God with our harsh words and hatred and potentially lose blessings. It's better to love and pray for all people.

    Now I need to let my words be few.
