As US cases of COVID-19 continue to escalate, seems a member of the Trump family’s inner circle is among the latest to test positive.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr. has contracted the coronavirus.
A spokesman for the Trump campaign says Guilfoyle was immediately isolated after the positive result and will be retested to confirm the diagnosis because she isn’t showing any symptoms of COVID-19.
The couple was in South Dakota to hold fundraisers for Trump’s reelection ahead of Trump’ s pre-Fourth of July speech at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Neither social distancing nor masks were required.
