Trump’s advisor Corona positive

President Donald Trump’s policy advisor Stephen Miller has tested positive for coronavirus.

“Over the last 5 days I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday. Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine,” Miller said in a statement on Tuesday.

After working from home for several days, Miller showed up to work Tuesday and tested positive, a source familiar with what happened told CNN.

He is the latest official caught up in an outbreak at the White House that has seen at least 10 others test positive.

He’s also the latest member of the President’s team who prepped him for last week’s presidential debate to test positive.

Of that team, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, aide Hope Hicks and Miller have all tested positive.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign aide Jason Miller are the only other members of that debate prep team and have each tested negative in recent days.

Miller also traveled aboard Air Force One on a Minnesota campaign trip with Trump and Hicks.

Officials have told that Hicks began feeling sick while on the flight back to Washington after a fundraiser and campaign rally in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

She isolated in a separate cabin after she began displaying symptoms.

Miller’s wife, Katie Miller, is Vice President Mike Pence’s communications director.

She already had coronavirus several months ago and tested negative again on Tuesday morning. She traveled with Pence to Salt Lake City ahead of the vice presidential debate scheduled for Wednesday, but left the trip Tuesday out of an abundance of caution, per an official.
