First lady Melania Trump, while isolating due to testing positive for COVID-19, hasn’t left and won’t leave the White House to visit the president in the hospital.
On Monday, she tweeted a new status report, saying, “I am feeling good and will continue to rest at home.”
“My family is grateful for all of the prayers & support! I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home. Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus,” her post on her official Twitter account read.
NBC News on Sunday and CNN on Monday reported that an unnamed White House official confirmed that the first lady would not break isolation to visit her husband due to concern that would expose the Secret Service agents who would drive her there, and the medical staff who would greet her.
These reports come after the president, who also tested positive and has been in the hospital for treatment since Friday evening, was driven by his Secret Service agents inside a sealed car to wave to a crowd of his supporters gathered outside the front gates of the hospital on Sunday afternoon.
