The President and First Lady have tested positive for Covid-19. VP Mike Pence and his wife have tested negative. Here are the details…
(by Half Dollar) In the early morning hours of October 2, 2020, President Trump fired off this Tweet, in which, he said this:
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2020

Bloomberg is reporting Pence and his wife have tested negative (bold added for emphasis commentary):
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife have tested negative for coronavirus. This is after President Donald Trump said early Friday that he has tested positive along with his wife and one of his closest aides, throwing an already volatile campaign into deeper disarray just one month before the election.
It will be interesting to see how the “markets” interpret this news, especially with words like “volatile” in the first paragraph.
