One of President Trump’s personal Navy valets has tested positive for coronavirus.
The valet, a member of the US Navy who works at the White House, had symptoms of the coronavirus Wednesday morning.
He was tested, and his test came back positive for the virus.
President Trump was reportedly informed about the situation and fake news CNN said Trump was “upset” when he was informed Wednesday that the valet had tested positive
According to TMZ, both President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence “have since tested negative for the virus and they remain in great health.”
The deputy press secretary also said in a statement:
‘We were recently notified 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. The President and the Vice President have since tested negative for the virus, and they remain in great health.’
The media also tried to make an issue out of President Trump not wearing a mask at the Phoenix Honeywell Plant. The president responded to say he wore a mask most of the time when he was behind the scenes.
The name of the Navy valet has not been released.
The Navy valets are part of a military unit that provide a variety of services for the West Wing.
