Don Jr., Trump’s oldest son has been infected with Covid-19

Donald Trump Jr, the oldest son of US President Donald Trump has tested positive for coronavirus.

The 42-year-old was diagnosed at the start of this week and has been quarantining at his hunting cabin since the result, according to his spokesperson.

“He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended Covid-19 guidelines,” according to the statement.




Don Jr is the second of the president’s children to test positive.

Barron Trump, 14, was also diagnosed last month, but made a swift recovery.

A firebrand speaker, Don Jr played a major role in his father’s presidential campaign.



Don Jr’s partner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host, tested positive for the disease in July, and also recovered. He apparently did not contract the infection at the time.

Earlier on Friday, Andrew Giuliani, a special assistant to President Trump, announced he had tested positive for coronavirus.

Mr Giuliani, the son of the president’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tweeted that he was experiencing mild symptoms after receiving his positive test on Friday morning.

In a latest outbreak at least four members of the White House tested positive for the virus.

Earlier this month, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was among several aides who tested positive for the infection.

The president himself spent three nights in hospital at the beginning of October after being hit by Covid-19. First Lady Melania Trump also had a bout of the infection.

Last month, Don Jr was criticised for downplaying the US coronavirus death toll.

In an interview with Fox News, he argued that the media was focusing on the caseload, while ignoring the mortality rate.




The virus has infected 11.8 million Americans and killed more than 253,000.

On Friday alone, 192,000 people in the US tested positive for coronavirus.
