WASHINGTON — Donald Trump Jr., US President Donald Trump's eldest son, has tested positive for coronavirus, the US media reported on Friday.

Trump Jr. becomes the latest figure close to the president to test positive for COVID-19.

In addition to himself, first lady Melania Trump, his youngest son Barron, his chief of staff Mark Meadows, and a number of other top aides both in his campaign and in the White House have tested positive in recent months.

Trump Jr.'s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, also tested positive for the virus over the summer as the duo campaigned for Trump throughout the country.

Trump Jr. was among the roughly 250 guests who attended the White House's indoor election night party, where nearly every attendee was seen not wearing a mask. Other party attendees have since tested positive, including Meadows, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and White House political affairs director Brian Jack.



The news comes as coronavirus is spreading throughout the country, with daily case records being set nearly every day in November, and is also spreading throughout Washington's halls of power. Two Republican senators, Rick Scott of Florida and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, have announced in the last few days that they tested positive and to this point, 26 House members and 10 senators have so far tested positive or been presumed positive since the beginning of the pandemic. — Courtesy CNN
