WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney to President Donald Trump, has tested positive for Covid-19, Trump announced Sunday.
“Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Giuliani was admitted to Georgetown University Hospital on Sunday, a source familiar confirmed to CNN.
A few hours after Trump shared the news, Giuliani, himself, appeared to confirm his positive diagnosis by posting on Twitter that he’s “getting great care and feeling good.”
There have been no additional details provided about his condition, and it is unclear when Giuliani received a positive test for Covid-19. He and his spokeswoman have not responded to CNN’s requests for comment.
The former mayor of New York has been crisscrossing the country to battleground states, leading the President’s long-shot legal battle to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The Trump campaign said in a statement late Sunday night that Giuliani tested negative twice “immediately preceding his trip to Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia” last week. The campaign added that Giuliani did not experience any symptoms or test positive for Covid-19 until more than 48 hours after his return.
