Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of President Donald Trump’s eldest son has tested positive for coronavirus.
She is a former Fox News television personality who is dating Donald Trump Jr and is a top fundraising official in the president’s re-election campaign, had traveled to South Dakota to see Trump’s Fourth of July speech and celebration fireworks at Mount Rushmore on Friday.
She tested positive after part of mandatory screening required of those who come in close contact with the president, the New York Times reported. She did not fly on Air Force One with the president, a source told the newspaper.
In a tweet on Saturday, Guilfoyle wrote: “Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers! I feel good thanks be to God and look forward to a speedy recovery so I can resume working to re-elect [Trump].”
Guilfoyle, 51, was immediately isolated after discovering she had the virus. Guilfoyle is at least the third person close to the US president to test positive for COVID-19. Others include Trump’s personal valet and the US vice president’s press secretary.
