  1. Melania Trump Tweeted:
    @FLOTUS
    As too many Americans have done this year,
    @potus
    & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.

  2. So the guy that wants your vote is to stupid to protect his own family, and everyone around him, by simply wearing a mask.? The country couldn’t be more vulnerable to national security issues to begin with, and now this administrations ignorance rules the day during an election year. The question begs “what were you thinking”? The unfortunate answer is —- Trump doesn’t think of anyone else.
    November 3 can’t come soon enough.
