New York: Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of President Donald Trump’s eldest son and a top fundraising official for the Trump reelection campaign, tested positive for the coronavirus Friday before a Fourth of July event at Mount Rushmore, a person familiar with her condition said.
Guilfoyle travelled to South Dakota with Donald Trump jnr, in anticipation of attending a huge fireworks display where the President is set to speak. They did not travel aboard Air Force One, according to the person familiar with her condition, and she was the only person in the group who tested positive.
As a routine precaution, people who come in close contact with Trump are screened for the virus.
Guilfoyle is the third person in possible proximity to Trump known to have contracted the virus. A personal valet who served Trump his food and the press secretary for Vice-President Mike Pence tested positive for the virus in May.
