(ReliableNews.org) – President Donald Trump announced that he and the First Lady tested positive for the coronavirus in an early morning tweet on Oct. 2, adding they would begin their quarantine immediately.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

White House physician Dr. Sean P. Conley confirmed the diagnosis in a memo posted about the same time as the president’s announcement. His memo stated the president and first lady were well and would convalesce at the White House.
Continuing, he confirmed his expectation that President Trump would continue to carry out the duties of his job without interruption during his recovery.
Testing positive for COVID-19 does not create the need for any emergency response. Millions of Americans have tested positive for the coronavirus, and an overwhelming number of them have been asymptomatic or experienced only mild symptoms.
As he’s always done, we can expect President Trump to remain in contact with the American people during his recovery.
UPDATE: A White House spokesperson told reporters at about 5 p.m. Eastern on Friday (Oct. 2) that President Trump would be transported to Walter Reed Hospital. According to the spokesperson, he would be working out of offices there the next few days as a precaution.
The entire country sends its regards to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump and wishes them a speedy recovery. May God bless them and the United States of America.
