Donald Trump Jr. is in isolation after becoming the youngest Republican to receive coronavirus for his father's superspreader events.
Bloomberg News reported:
President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., tested positive for coronavirus infection earlier this week and is in isolation, according to three people familiar with the matter.
Trump Jr. adds to the dozen of people connected to the president who are infected with the virus, including Trump himself. On Friday, Rudy Giuliani's son Andrew Giuliani, a White House adviser, announced on Twitter that he had tested positive have. In addition, Hannah McInnis, an associate of Vice President Mike Pence, tested positive earlier this month, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Dozens of family members and employees of the President got coronavirus thanks to Donald Trump's refusal to follow CDC guidelines. The latest wave of the coronavirus in the Trump circle can be traced back to the president, who is holding a non-socially distant and maskless election night party in the White House.
Donald Trump Jr. has finally got something from his father except a name that will forever be synonymous with loss and possible future conviction for a crime. Trump also gave COVID to his son, which, given things, could be the best gift Don Jr. has had from his father in a long time.
