President Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump tested negative for COVID-19 after the president tested positive, the White House said Friday.

“@IvankaTrump and Jared Kushner were tested again today for COVID-19 and both are negative,” White House spokeswoman Carolina Hurley wrote on Twitter.

Trump, 74, issued an after-midnight tweet announcing that he and the first lady were positive for the illness, which has infected 7.2 million Americans and killed 207,000 since March.

The president tweeted: “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Trump’s close aide Hope Hicks tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday after developing symptoms during a relatively brisk 46-minute Trump campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday night.
