President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, he announced on Twitter early Friday.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” he tweeted.

Hope Hicks, one of the president’s closest senior advisers, tested positive for the virus on Thursday, making her the highest-profile member of the administration to contract the virus who is in frequent contact with Trump and other top officials.

Trump, 74, told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday after Hicks’ positive test that he and the first lady, 50, were tested after Hicks tested positive and later tweeted they were starting the “quarantine process.”

The president has held campaign rallies around the country for months, many of which are outdoors but some have been indoors. The most recent one was Wednesday night in Minnesota and he also traveled to New Jersey on Thursday for a fundraiser.

Hicks along with several top White House and campaign advisers traveled with the president to Cleveland for Tuesday’s debate against Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The president has drawn sharp criticism for his handling of the pandemic and downplaying its threat.

Also, his administration has sowed confusion over wearing a mask to slow the spread of Covid-19 and public health experts have said this mixed messaging hampered the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and even led to preventable deaths.

Call it fake news,but Lady Karma ………!!!! Let me save my voice for all the tax payers who are paying for this SOB healthcare when he took all the loop holes given to the rich and paid only 750.00 in taxes and avoid paying for yrs.

I hope he rot in all along with all his cronies. Let me save my energy to stand with all the citizens of all the sh1t hole countries.

        • So aware of everything Donald Trump says and does. It shows your lack of knowledge of what else has been going on around the world. How sad.

    • A lot of people are gloating, wishing Trump dead. Trump is not a ‘yes man’. He’s not afraid to lose friends so he tells it like it is. People do not like that. Hope he and his beautiful wife will be safe.

    GREAT JOB GOVERNMENT…. CARRY ON! AS YOU WERE!

    • Will you stop this black/white nonsense I know of at least 16 white folk including myself that were quarantined.
      It’s more to do with what what you say at the airport on arrival, if people say there on holiday (free pass) if you say you live here boom 14 days & it doesn’t matter what passport you hold because I hold a A&B passport while others I know hold British,US, Canadian passports all of which live here.
      The nonsense is why do people on holiday who’s test is 7 days old get a free pass while my test was only 48 hours old gets 14 days & the report in this paper last week that said I could have another test within 7 days of arrival & if clear be released from quarantine, well I asked the nurse I have to report to everyday & she said she had never been told about so NO I wouldn’t be released.

      • Yes that’s right! We are not black and we get the same treatment Upon arriver, the airport staffs are rude to us! 14 days quarantine and report temperatures twice a day, if not we can’t get a letter from min health to return to school or work…… at same time some tourists arrive at same date was out after 2 days doing island tour! So Antigua can’t get another test after 7days and get back to work Earning living, but tourists and local with international passport can be free.

  3. I’m sure the Trumps will be fine… the vast majority of people who get covid make a full recovery in 14 days or less.Yes Less!

    People fear what they don’t know and I believe the government is using fear to drive the people into submission oppose to educating people about the virus.

    In Antigua, I see many people driving around in cars by themselves alone, wearing masks with the fear of being stopped and fined by Antigua police..
    When it is perfectly safe and recommended by the CDC and WHO, that when you are alone you need not wear a mask.

    It’s obvious the Antiguan leadership isn’t educated on covid and most of the people aren’t, so they just imposed fines to keep all in line opposed to finding a solution to move forward safely.

    Just my observation! I wish everyone safety and good health.

    • Does A government have to tell its people it is okay to not wear a mask if they are in a car by themselves? What happen to common sense?

    • I hope the old Trump will be okay, but don’t forget the elderly gentleman is fat and has a number of health issues. Besides all that, he old. I wish him well, but he’s got an uphill battle. Just too fat and too old.

  4. It’s time that orange MF go drink some bleach or take a triple dose of the hydroxychloroquine that he was peddling to the American people God ain’t sleeping.

    • I hope same for you. You are one of the ‘yes men’, who will settle for bribes and afraid to speak your mind to right the wrongs your government is guilty of.

  5. Who is to believe Trump he tell so much lies and this might just be another one to get some sympathy because all of a sudden people now believing that he is a human being but that’s not so Trump is a scumbag without any moral or one bit of sympathy for another human being.

    • STHU. Your government tells lies also. Leave Trump alone. He had no political experience but he muddled slong trying to do the best for his country.

      • He muddled along and caused so much chaos in the world taking advantage of other people’s country. He maybe justly rewarded. The world doesn’t need Trump, the world needs to be rid of this narcissist.

  6. Yet heap load a Antigua people run go America to have pickney including the PM latest offspring.

    • The PM latest offspring was born at Mount St John’s Medical Center. I know you hate the man but do your research before you come on the internet and make yourself into a complete fool.

      • @ Controversy

        I hate what he a do the country and the people.

        Thank you, I stand corrected. I was misinformed.

  7. Those who don’t believe Trump is, like Trevor, an avowed racist in a simpleton, to put it as mildly as I can. It is obvious that those people do not acquaint themselves with world affairs from the the wide variety of available sources. No wonder tbe quality of the comments this news source (ANR) generates!!

    • Since we are all simpletons you should enlighten us as to what (in actuality) Trump did that was no. 1 racist and no. 2 a simpleton. Was it perhaps the booming economy with businesses returning to America and providing widespread employment, the reduction of taxes, blocking flights from China and controlling China’s spying and aggression, building a wall on their border and putting in place preventative measures to stop illegal entry into the USA and the list goes on. I have seen and heard Trump publically denouncing the KKK and well known racists and white supremacists on several occasions. I hope it is that you are not defending the rioting and looting because that would not be allowed in Antigua either. From what this simpleton sees Trump has put America and Americans first and that is categorically how it should be in Antigua not overrun and soon to be sold out to and suppressed by destructive Chinese.

  8. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

  9. I do enjoy the way you have presented this issue and it does offer me personally some fodder for consideration. However, because of everything that I have observed, I simply just hope when the commentary stack on that people today remain on issue and in no way start on a tirade associated with some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this exceptional piece and although I do not really agree with this in totality, I value your point of view.

  10. Thanks for your post. One other thing is that if you are advertising your property on your own, one of the troubles you need to be cognizant of upfront is how to deal with household inspection reports. As a FSBO owner, the key concerning successfully moving your property in addition to saving money on real estate agent profits is information. The more you already know, the more stable your property sales effort are going to be. One area where this is particularly significant is assessments.

  11. What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!

  13. In the grand scheme of things you’ll secure an A+ just for effort and hard work. Where exactly you misplaced us was first in your facts. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more true right here. Having said that, allow me tell you what did give good results. Your text is certainly extremely powerful and this is probably why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, even though I can easily see a leaps in reason you make, I am not confident of exactly how you seem to connect the details which produce your final result. For now I shall subscribe to your position however wish in the foreseeable future you actually link your facts much better.

  14. One thing I’d like to say is that often before purchasing more laptop memory, look at the machine into which it can be installed. Should the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Putting in in excess of this would just constitute a waste. Make sure that one’s motherboard can handle an upgrade volume, as well. Great blog post.

  15. Has anyone ever been to Jungle Juice Vapor Lounge Ecigarette Shop in 513 Maple Ave. West, 2nd Floor?
