President Donald Trump took to Twitter late Thursday night to share that he and Melania Trump have contracted the coronavirus. In his tweet Trump says, “we will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.”

This comes after one of the president’s top advisors Hope Hicks tested positive for Covid-19 Thursday morning after experiencing symptoms earlier this week.

Celebrities have been quick to take to social media to share their thoughts on the President’s diagnosis.

Cardi B kept her message very simple and tame on Twitter.

Alyssa Milano tweet was heartfelt as she is still experiencing symptoms from the virus months later.

Whitney Cummings tweeted about Trump’s announcement twice, poking fun at him.

Zach Braff, who lost his close friend Nick Cordero to Covid-19 earlier this year, tweeted as well.
