One of Trump’s private valet has been tested positive for coronavirus

One of Trump's private valet has been tested positive for coronavirus

Valet was a member of an elite military unit dedicated to the White House and often worked very closely with the President and first family. Trump was upset when he was told Wednesday that the waiter was tested positive, sources told CNN, and he was later tested again by a White House doctor.

In a statement, the White House confirmed CNN’s report that one of the President’s valet had tested positive.

“We were recently told by the White House Medical Unit that a member of the United States Military, who works on the White House campus, has tested positive for Coronavirus,” White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement. “The President and Vice President have since tested negative for the virus and they remain healthy.”

A White House source said the maid, a man who had not been identified, showed “symptoms” Wednesday morning, and said the news that someone close to Trump had tested positive for the corona virus was “hitting the fan” in the West Wing.

Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and senior staff who regularly interact with them are still being tested every week for the corona virus, two people who are familiar told CNN. The White House continues to use the Abbott Lab test quickly, which gives results in about 15 minutes. Some officials who have received the test say it is often given at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, next to the West Wing in the White House lawn. A medics wiped the staff’s nostrils and told them that they would be notified in the next few minutes if positive.

This story broke and will be updated.
