  • Spokesman: Trump's Eldest Son Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Donald Trump Jr, the eldest son of the President of the United States, has contracted the deadly coronavirus virus (COVID-19).

President Trump tweeted on Friday and said, "My son Donald is doing very well".

According to reports, the 42-year-old Trump Jr was diagnosed earlier in the week - as the virus struck DC Republicans including Sen. "Thank you!" the president tweeted, following Friday's disclosure that the 42-year-old Trump scion had become one of the almost 12 million Americans infected by the virus.

President-elect Joe Biden made President Trump's response to the virus a top issue in the recently concluded race for the White House, though Trump has yet to acknowledge the outcome.
