President Trump announced today that both he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested postive for COVID.
We wish both the President and the First Lady a quick and speedy recovery.
Because if anyone can clear this virus, it’s President Trump.
Here’s the latest details from the New York Times:
President Trump said early Friday morning that he and the first lady have tested positive for the coronavirus, throwing the nation’s leadership into uncertainty and escalating the crisis posed by a pandemic that has already killed more than 207,000 Americans and devastated the economy.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter shortly before 1 a.m. “We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”
The president’s physician said Mr. Trump was “well” without saying whether he was experiencing symptoms and added that the president would stay isolated in the White House for now.
“The president and first lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence,” the physician, Sean P. Conley, said in a statement without saying how long that would be. “Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments.”
As you can expect, liberals have been quick to post completely nasty things on Twitter.
Many are wishing for the President to die.

According to USA Today, stock market futures plunged immediately following the annoucnement of the President's test results:
The stock market appeared headed for a sharp drop early Friday after President Donald Trump said he and his wife, Melania, had tested positive for COVID-19.
Dow futures – which predict how the Dow Jones Industrial Average will move when the market opens for trading in the morning – fell 401 points, implying an opening decline of about 406.
Similarly, futures connected to the Nasdaq and S&P 500 signaled sharp drops.
It was not immediately clear why investors were jittery at the news, but it's conventional wisdom in the markets that investors don't like uncertainty.
The Dow closed up 0.1% to 27,816.9 points on Thursday, so a drop of 406 points would equal a decline of 1.5%.
To be sure, a temporary drop or increase in stock futures can also reverse directions quickly.
The President actually called into Sean Hannity's show just hours before he received his test results.
