PANDEMIC: “There is no risk of exposure of the president, Donald Trump or the vice president,” the White House said in a statement
The virus is approaching … Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, has tested positive for Coronavirus Covid-19, the White House said on Monday. Robert O’Brien, who occupies a crucial position within the US executive, has isolated himself and works “from a secure place” outside the White House, the latter said in a statement. “There is no risk of exposure of the president or the vice-president,” she added.
Robert O’Brien made a trip to Paris in mid-July where he, in particular, met his French, German, Italian and British counterparts. In May, Katie Miller, spokesperson for Vice President Mike Pence and wife of Stephen Miller, a close adviser to Donald Trump, had tested positive. She has since returned to work.
In early July, Kimberly Guilfoyle, former Fox News presenter and girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr, also tested positive for Coronavirus Covid-19. She is one of the main funders of Donald Trump’s campaign, which will seek a second term on November 3rd.
