The President's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, has tested positive for coronavirus, his personal spokesman told us Friday.
The statement reads "Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result," the spokesman said. "He's been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines."
This comes as numerous Trump family members and officials have tested positive over the course of the last few weeks. It first started with political advisor Hope Hicks contracting the virus, followed by President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. Soon after, Trump's youngest son Barron tested positive.
The rapid nature of the virus signifies how quickly it can spread to numerous people within a short period of time. It also brings to light how the White House has yet to control the epidemic within its own walls.
Trump Jr. may have come in contact with the virus while at a watch party on election night in the White House. Soon after the event, several Trump cabinet members tested positive, including Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
Trump Jr's girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, also tested positive for the virus over the summer while campaigning for the President.
