Donald Trump's son catches COVID-19

Donald Trump's son catches COVID-19

Trump Jr, 42, is the latest in the Trump family to be infected after Donald Trump, Melania Trump and their son Barron were diagnosed with Covid-19 in October, exactly a month before the U.S. election.

Donald Trump Jr, the son of US President Donald Trump, tested positive for Covid-19 this week, although he is experiencing no symptoms, according to his spokesman.

He is reportedly asymptomatic and quarantining at a private location following the test result. CBS News has confirmed at least four other White House aides have tested positive for COVID-19.

Several of Pence's aides have been infected, including his press secretary and chief of staff. Pence himself has not.

The White House has hosted a number of events that eschewed social distancing guidelines, including a crowded Election Night party that Don Jr. attended. Their 14-year-old son Barron had also tested positive.

Like his father he had also consistently downplayed the pandemic, telling Fox News as the virus surged around the country last month that deaths from COVID-19 had fallen to 'almost nothing'. "We understand how it works".

He's a "special assistant" to Trump.

The virus has infected over 11.8 million Americans and killed more than 253,000. More than 254,000 Americans have died from the virus since February.

The younger Giuliani attended a news conference with his father Thursday where the former New York City mayor and other members of Trump's legal team challenged the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Trump campaign adviser Jenna Ellis said she and Rudy Giuliani had tested negative.
