BREAKING | Donald Trump tests positive for COVID-19

Trump

Twitter is on fire after President Trump tweeted out that he and the first lady have tested positive for COVID-19.

The positive test came after senior aide Hope Hicks came down with the virus while traveling with the president several times this week.

Trump's personal physician says the president and his wife are both well and plan to remain at home at the White House while they recover.

He adds the president will continue carrying out his duties "without disruption'' while recovering.

The White House is now cancelling all of his upcoming campaign events.

Trump is 74 years old, an age which puts him at higher risk of developing serious complications from the virus.
