White House senior adviser Stephen Miller.
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller said he had tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, the latest case of coronavirus reported among Donald Trump’s inner circle since the Republican president announced he had the virus last week.
“Over the last 5 days I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday,” Miller said in a statement.
“Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine.”
Trump returned to the White House on Monday after three nights in a military hospital, urging Americans not to be afraid and not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives.

I have to admit, it took longer than I expected. For the men and women who surrounded President Trump and took no real precautions, coronavirus took a while to arrive.
