Donald Trump aide Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew tests positive for coronavirus

The son of US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Andrew, has tested positive for coronavirus. This comes after Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. also tested positive for the disease.

“This morning, I tested positive for COVID-19,” the younger Giuliani, who joined the Trump White House’s Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs in 2017, said on Twitter. “I am experiencing mild symptoms, and am following all appropriate protocols, including being in quarantine and conducting contact tracing.”

This comes a day after Andrew attended his father’s press conference on Thursday at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, according to multiple reports. The elder Giuliani and other Trump campaign lawyers spoke without masks from an indoor podium, to an audience of dozens, reported Reuters.

However, Rudy Giuliani has tested negative for coronavirus, revealed another Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis who spoke at the press conference.

“The entire legal team will continue to follow the advice and protocols of our doctors,” Ellis wrote.

Several White House staffers have tested positive for the disease in recent weeks, including chief of staff Mark Meadows, while six members of Congress have tested positive this week, reported Reuters.
