President Donald Trump announced on Twitter early this morning that he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19.
Earlier in the day, it was learned that White House Advisor Hope Hicks had tested positive for the virus. Hicks was near the First Family during recent trips, including to Tuesday’s debate and a campaign rally in Minnesota.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER,” the President tweeted just before 1 a.m. Friday.
According to OAN reporter Alex Salvi, a White House doctor said Trump will continue to carry out his duties as President:
But it didn’t take long for CNN to start thinking about a succession plan, not even knowing if Trump was suffering any symptoms of COVID-19. You can almost sense their giddiness:

The President’s tweet received about 700,000 likes in the first 2 hours it was posted. Sadly, many were likely from people (and we use that term lightly) actually celebrating a person getting sick.
President Trump, First Lady Melania Test Positive for COVID-19
Rest assured, there are still human beings out there who are decent.
Many Trump supporters took to his favorite social media platform to wish the First Family the best in their recovery from COVID-19.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wished the Trumps well:
My best wishes to President Trump and the First Lady. Hope they both have a speedy recovery from coronavirus.

Tom Fitton, the founder of Judicial Watch and an influential supporter of the President, sent out a tweet early this morning:
Prayers and best wishes to you and the First Lady for a speedy and full recovery!
— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) October 2, 2020
Scott Presler, who campaigns in support of Trump, also tweeted his well wishes Friday morning:
So far, one person who actually wanted Trump’s job offered her hope for a recovery from the President and First Lady. Former Democrat candidate Tulsi Gabbarrd posted this message on Twitter:
My husband Abraham and I offer our best wishes and aloha to President @realDonaldTrump and the First Lady @FLOTUS and praying for their speedy recovery. We also send our best wishes to Ivanka, Tiffany, Donald Trump Jr., Eric, and Barron during this difficult time. #TrumpHasCovid

Leftists React with Disgusting Vitriol to Trump’s Positive COVID Diagnosis
You’d think someone being diagnosed with a potentially deadly virus would at least draw some kind of sympathy from leftists. But when Orange Man Bad he’s still Orange Man Bad even with COVID.
Some of the reactions on Twitter are downright disgusting and sub-human. Of course, they don’t care.
This person who claims to be a Jew who will take your guns and somehow earned a blue checkmark from Twitter said:
I hope you get a mutation of the virus that makes your anus fall off

And if you’re a Trump supporter and ever get sick, pray you don’t encounter this self-proclaimed ER doctor:
Imagine living your life with this much hate:
And they say they’re the tolerant ones. Interesting.
This lady seems really nice:
This person suggests the President inject bleach, referencing something Trump never actually said:
Have you tried injecting Bleach?
I hear the smartest man said it's a good idea? pic.twitter.com/bNLBISROX2

This guy is … sorry, was running for Congress:
How can you test positive for something that is a Democratic hoax?
Why did you even take a test, as I thought you said that if you don’t get tested you can’t get it?

These celebratory tweets about Trump being infected with coronavirus are really sickening:
Remember, these are the same people screaming that Trump lacks empathy.
October 2, 2020 at 8:05 am
So much hate and mental unchecked mental illness in the world, it is beyond sad…. people need to work on being better….take the high road, 2 wrongs don’t make a right, etc…..sickening already.
October 2, 2020 at 8:24 am
Apparently the Trumps are asymptomatic and we should all pray that it stays that way. In the meantime, the Lefts are showing exactly what they’re made of. Another sign to any true Democrats that their party has gone over the cliff.

What happened? Why no “China Virus” in headline?
October 2, 2020 at 9:48 pm
China should be held accountable. If there ever was a case of Gross Negligence, China and their virus is it. The US should be compensated big time for the mess the Commies mishandled and covered up to save their 1 party system. China will go from Communist to Authocratic regime in less than 10 years. It’s how Communism ends up eventually. This virus is just an example of far left in power.
October 2, 2020 at 7:01 pm
Trump was taking HCQ, I thought it was this wonder drug. He gets what he deserves for not wearing a mask. He’s an idiot.
October 2, 2020 at 9:38 pm
We’d call you a disgusting human being but humans don’t wish ill on others. Grow up.
October 2, 2020 at 9:42 pm
I don’t wish ill on others idiot. I’ve been warning other people since the beginning. I think doctor’s and medical professionals know more about viruses than Trump or you for that matter. You need to grow up and be more responsible.
October 2, 2020 at 9:54 pm
The mask is supposed to protect others. You wearing a mask isn’t protecting you from anything. Don’t you follow science?
To be happy someone is ill is pure evil. It seems to be a common theme for leftists.
October 2, 2020 at 10:02 pm
You’re so right Frank. Masks don’t help with an airborne virus. Makes you wonder why doctor’s wear masks. You’re an idiot!
October 3, 2020 at 2:40 pm
I’m just going by what doctors told me Jason. I have a few friends that are surgeons, cardiologists, and you oncologists, who I get information from. I trust them way before I trust an anonymous leftist in a comment section. Otherwise I would be an idiot.
October 3, 2020 at 7:10 pm
You are not listening to doctors. The CDC and every country recommends wearing them. You “people” called masks satanic. Trump deviantly didn’t wear one, in order to make you types happy, and now he has COVID. Congratulations. The dynamic between him and you (his supporters) is akin to an abusive relationship.
October 4, 2020 at 10:35 am
Do you remember when Fauci said “masks do nothing”, and NOT to use them?…oh, you forgot. Many doctors, worldwide, disagree on MANY things surrounding the virus…you simply dislike President Trump, and equally dislike the people who support him and our great country. You should be ashamed of yourself.
…At no point ever, did anyone say they were satanic.
October 4, 2020 at 12:13 pm
Ok there PT. Trump knew on Feb.7th that the virus was airborne. He also knew it was more deadly than the most strenuous flus. It’s just common sense that masks are helpful in containing an airborne virus. You’re just trying to cover for Trump’s poor decision making. He was just worried about the impact on Wall St. Unfortunately, thousands of people are dead today because of his poor decision making.
October 4, 2020 at 2:45 pm
I understand many liberals are hoping for more death before the election. Doesn’t China have anything to do with it?
How many of the deaths in PA is Tom Wolf responsible for?
October 6, 2020 at 8:38 am
About 8300…most of which were vulnerable, elderly citizens that were put to death, by the Wolf/Levine policy deathpunch…nobody cares. Nobody cares about these policies by Democrat Governors that killed our elderly and most vulnerable…it’s minimized and blame is magically and instantly shifted, as if it never happened. In addition, our national media is a propaganda machine for the Left. It’s painfully and clearly obvious now, more than ever.
October 4, 2020 at 2:43 pm
Your hate has you blind. Notice what my comment was. I will copy and paste it here:
“The mask is supposed to protect others. You wearing a mask isn’t protecting you from anything.”
Notice I didn’t say anything about “not wearing them”. I wear a mask every time I am in public around people. The mask doesn’t protect me, it protects those around me, according to medical professionals I am friends with.
Slow down with your hate and intolerance and try to read what was actually written. Have a nice day.
October 3, 2020 at 7:13 pm
You reap what you sow
October 3, 2020 at 2:48 am
This is the BEST news ever: I just tested negative for sympathy, I hope he dies from it. Trump supporters are the LAST people on-earth qualified to comment on morality or what’s right or wrong. After all, if they could be swayed by logic, reason or decency: they wouldn’t be Trump supporters. The man’s vile by almost every metric, and after four yrs of this festering sack of orange clownshit, ignorance can no longer be claimed as a defence, if you still support him: YOU’RE either vile, or deeply, incurably, genetically stupid. That last part is definitely true: >peer reviewed science< confirms Trump supporters: are the lowest IQ voting block in the entire country, not merely the least educated and closest to the archetype of evil. So you're either evil or stupid: which one are you?
October 3, 2020 at 2:33 pm
You are a prime example of the hate-filled intolerant left
October 3, 2020 at 10:43 pm
As someone who coined a vile reference to a sex toy, as they robbed the great name of a Tolkien character, you instantly qualify as vile, evil, and a steaming pile of clown poop.
…You are now recognized as “low IQ Dildo”
October 3, 2020 at 10:00 am
Wow “dildo”,reread ur comments. U are everything u claim others to be. I should pray for ur soul, but I’m an “immoral trump supporter”
October 3, 2020 at 2:58 pm
Frank, trust me there’s more than enough evidence. The virus is airborne and Trump knew this Feb. 7th. It’s just common sense it certainly doesn’t hurt to wear one. Just be smart and protect yourself during the flu season. It will probably be more deadly during the winter.
October 3, 2020 at 3:06 pm
The CDC recently admitted they were wrong and it’s not airborne.
October 3, 2020 at 3:21 pm
Rox, you must be listening to FAKE NEWS!You just make it up as you go along.
October 4, 2020 at 3:59 pm
Frank, I’ve been warning people since the beginning to do what they can to protect themselves and you think I want to see more dead. Sorry Frank, we all don’t think like you do. If the situation was reversed that’s what you’d be hoping for. As for Tom Wolf, he put in restrictions that helped save lives and slow down the spread of the virus. The CDC came out with a report that most people who contracted covid were most likely in restaurants. It’s just common sense. In places where people congregate such as bars and restaurants, you won’t be able to social distance and wear a mask while drinking a beer or eating a meal. Common Sense. He put in the same common sense restrictions as other states in the northeast, the main reason why we didn’t see 100,000 + cases a day in this country. Not Trump. The smart governor’s of the Northeast. Common Sense, Frank! Common Sense.
