The president tweeted: “My son Donald is doing very well. Thank you!”
It comes hours after Friday’s disclosure that the 42-year-old Trump scion had become one of the nearly 12 million Americans infected by the virus. More than 250,000 Americans have lost their lives to the virus, the highest death toll of any country.
Donald Trump Jr. learned of his positive test result earlier this week, has had no symptoms and was following all medically recommended guidelines for treating the illness, said a spokesperson, who was granted anonymity to discuss private medical information.
Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, tested positive for the coronavirus in July.
Scores of people who work for or associate with the president have also recovered from recent infections, including White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
