trump melania masks quarantined

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19.

Both the President and the First Lady announced the results of their tests in the early hours of Friday.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” the president tweeted. “We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.”

“As too many Americans have done this year, POTUS & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19,” tweeted the First Lady. “We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.”

The announcement came after the President’s announcement on Twitter on Thursday evening that he and his wife would go into quarantine after one of the closest advisors of Trump resulted positive to Covid-19.

“Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for COVID 19,” Trump said. “Terrible! The First Lady an I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!”

During Trump’s interview with Hannity, he confirmed that Hicks “did test positive, I just heard about this. She tested positive. She’s a hard worker. Lot of masks, she wears masks a lot but she tested positive.”

“Then I just went out with a test. I’ll see — you know, because we spent a lot of time — and the first lady just went out with a test also,” he told Hannity. “So whether we quarantine or whether we have it, I don’t know.”

It was an hour after the call in interview on Fox News that he tweeted that he and his wife would be going into quarantine.

Hicks had traveled with Trump on many occasions recently. She was with him on Tuesday during the debate in Cleveland. She was also seen ” boarding Marine One, along with several other of the President’s closest aides — Jared Kushner, Dan Scavino and Nicholas Luna — none of whom wore masks, on Wednesday as Trump was heading to a campaign rally in Minnesota,” according to reports.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
