Seventy-four-year-old US president who downplayed Corona Virus before and mocked people for promoting the prevention measures to fight against the virus is tested positive for the COVID-19.
Trump tweeted, “Tonight. @Flotus (Melania Trump) and I tested positive for COVID-19. We’ll begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Before the tweet went live, Trump tweeted, “Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without taking a small break, just tested positive for COVID-19. Terrible thing! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. Meantime, we are in our quarantine process!” Hope Kicks is one of the people who were in the campaign rally.
Confirming the news, Melena Trump tweeted, “As too many Americans have done this year, Potus and I are quarantining together at home after testing positive for COVID. We are feeling good, and I have postponed all the upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.”

After this news broke, the whole internet trolled Trump. There were jokes, memes that emerged. Trump used to gather a massive rally; with most of the people without mask, where he tries to criticise the virus’s preventions. In addition, he also ridicules the pandemic experts and health/medical professionals who were talking about the severity of the global pandemic. Trump said in a speech, “The end of the pandemic is in sight, and next year will be one of the greatest years in the history for our country”. But after someday, he gets positive. This made the highest-profile COVID-19 case.
Now we have to see how the public, the electorate, and others will react to it.
