Trump is 74 and also meets the technical threshold for obesity, putting him at higher risk of serious complications from the virus.

A statement from the White House doctor said both the president and first lady are ‘well at this time’ but did not say if either have symptoms.

Melania, 50, also Tweeted to assure she and Donnie and feeling fine:

The positive test means Trump will have to scrap Friday’s plans for a fundraiser at his Washington, D.C., hotel and a political rally in Sanford, Florida. It could also mean no more debates between him and Joe Biden – with the next one scheduled for October 15. Or maybe they’ll just do it on Zoom and have it turn out to be a bigger shit-show than the first debate.

With Trump and the White House constantly downplaying the threat of COVID-19 and even taking the piss out of Joe Biden for wearing a mask the other night, it is pretty damn ironic to now see the President has the virus. Not that it’ll make the families and friends of the 200,000+ Americans killed by the virus thus far feel better.

Here’s some of the reaction to Trump’s diagnosis online – including well wishes, conspiracy theories and flat out celebrations:

About what you’d expect really. Question now is did Trump pass the virus to Joe Biden while he was yelling at him at the debates the other night? Well let’s hope not because no matter what your political leanings are, it is pretty shitty to wish death and illness on someone, even someone like Donald Trump who has cocked up the coronavirus response completely.

We all saw what happened with Boris ending up in the ICU so we’ll have to wait and see whether the virus has that bad an effect on Trump too. Not ruling out the possibility this is Fake News from Trump and part of some kind of plan he’s cooked up, but I guess we’ll have to see what happens. I remember back in March people were so sure Trump was gonna get COVID and so it’s pretty fitting that it happens now in the spooky month of October. 2020 just keeps on bringing the hits.
