Just before 1 a.m. ET Friday, the president posted via Twitter that he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the novel coronavirus, adding that the two "will get through this together."

Reports Friday said Trump was experiencing cold-like symptoms.

Hours earlier, he had said that Hope Hicks, his adviser, also tested positive for Covid-19.

Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, and Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, have all tested negative.

The announcement early Friday from Trump comes as big cities across the U.S., such as New York, have seen coronavirus cases spike.

Roughly 7.29 million cases of the virus have been confirmed in the U.S., with more than 208,068 deaths, the most in the world.

The announcement also comes with the presidential election just 33 days away.

Dr. William Lang, medical director of WorldClinic and a former White House physician, weighs in on President Trump testing positive for the coronavirus.  

After the interview, the White House announced that the President would be heading to Walter Reed Medical Center for a few days for tests.
