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!

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.
