A top official in the Trump re-election campaign has just tested positive for COVID-19, the New York Times reported this morning, Manila time.

She also happens to be Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend.

Kimberly Guilfoyle was tested positive in the state of South Dakota, where she and the oldest son of US president Donald Trump were holding fundraisers for the latter’s re-election push.

Trump was also in town to give a pre-Fourth of July speech in South Dakota.

“After testing positive, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure," said Sergio Gor, chief of staff for the campaign’s finance committee. 

He added: "She's doing well, and will be retested to ensure the diagnosis is correct since she's asymptomatic but as a precaution will cancel all upcoming events. Donald Trump Jr. was tested negative, but as a precaution is also self isolating and is canceling all public events."

Sources told CNN that Trump himself has also tested negative.

Ironically, Donald Trump Jr. recently posted a misleading meme that suggested masks were ineffective in preventing the novel coronavirus.

Over a picture of workers in biohazard suits, part of the meme’s text said: “Don’t worry, though. Your bandana probably works, too.” Trump Jr. captioned his post, “Solid point.”

His father, though, has made a recent turnaround from his previous position and said on early July that he is “all for masks" and that "masks are good."

Kimberly Guilfoyle was a former TV host on Fox News, and began dating Donald Trump Jr. at around the same time that she was about to leave Fox News. She has been active in the campaign since then, working closely with its finance arm.
