Question

According to CNN:

A source close to Donald Trump said the President is telling people close to him that he is indeed concerned about coming into contact with people who have contracted the coronavirus, including the Brazilian official who tested positive after coming face-to-face with Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

Will it be reported that Trump has tested positive for COVID-19 in 2020?

This question resolves positively if it is reported that Donald Trump tested positively for COVID-19 in 2020. Resolution is by any of the following:

  • Statements by Donald Trump himself (through a televised address, made by the @realDonaldTrump or @POTUS twitter accounts, or by a signed letter)
  • Statements made by Mike Pence
  • Statements made by the White House

An announcement that Trump was found to have the relevant antibodies that would only be present if he had COVID-19 is sufficient for positive resolution.

In case of positive resolution, this question resolves 48 hours before the first reports.
