In a dramatic turn of events, President Donald Trump has tested positive for coronavirus, developed mild symptoms and was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center out of an abundance of caution. Trump appears to be doing well, but people in his orbit continue to test positive, including Trump 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien and former White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.
