Andrew Giuliani, special assistant to President Donald Trump and the son of Trump campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani, said on Friday he tested positive for coronavirus, a day after attending a press conference crowded where her father and other country lawyers weren’t wearing masks

“I am showing mild symptoms and I am following all appropriate protocols including quarantine and contact tracing,” said young Giuliani in a tweet revealing his positive test for Covid-19

Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, another top lawyer for the Trump campaign team, have both tested negative for the coronavirus, Ellis said in a tweet posted later Friday

“The entire legal team will continue to follow the advice and protocols of our doctors,” Ellis wrote

Andrew Giuliani works as a sports liaison officer in the White House, with an annual salary of $ 95,000, according to government documents

His Twitter profile indicates that he “currently serves the American public as special assistant to President Donald J Trump until January 20, 2025 “

Later Friday, NBC News reported that three low-level White House staff have also tested positive for the coronavirus in recent days

A campaign official told NBC News Andrew wore a mask during Thursday’s press conference chaired by his father, the former New York mayor, at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington

During the nearly two-hour event, Rudy Giuliani and other Trump campaign lawyers spoke at length, without wearing a mask, as they claimed without evidence that widespread electoral fraud rigged the presidential election for Democrat Joe Biden

The Trump campaign and its allies have failed to convince any judge of such fraud in multiple lawsuits, and the Biden campaign has castigated what it calls baseless allegations

During the press conference, Rudy Giuliani was sweating profusely, so much so that the hair dye was visibly running down his cheeks

More than three dozen people linked to the White House and events there have tested positive for Covid-19 in recent months, including the president himself, First Lady Melania Trump, their son Barron, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and campaign leader Bill Stépien
