Donald J. Trump and Melania Trump have both tested positive for COVID-19.  After months of downplaying the virus, Trump announced on Twitter that he and Melania Trump tested positive, 

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this together!” says Trump in a Tweet released during the early hours of Friday morning.

Trump will remain at home. Trump’s quarantine will force his campaign to cancel rallies in three states vital to his campaign: Florida, Arizona, and Wisconsin. 

Vice President Mike Pence has tested negative for COVID-19. “Vice President Pence remains in good health and wishes the Trumps well in their recovery,” says Devin O’ Malley, Press Secretary for Mike Pence. 

The news of Trump’s positive test has lead to a slew of many questions. Many are wondering what would happen if Trump becomes too ill to lead the country. In this case, Vice President Mike Pence will take over. 

The stock market has also seen a dip in the news of Trump contracting the virus.
