“(Giuliani) by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC… has tested positive for the China Virus,” Trump said on social media. “Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on.”

Giuliani was exhibiting some COVID-19 symptoms and was admitted Sunday to Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, The Associated Press reported.

Giuliani is the latest member in President Donald Trump’s sphere to test positive.

Corey Lewandowski, a senior advisor for Trump’s re-election campaign, tested positive last month. He believed he caught the virus while he spent time in Philadelphia. Lewandowski was in Pennsylvania with Giuliani where they appeared together and lobbed unfound accusations of voter fraud in front of a landscape company.
