Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and personal lawyer and prominent member of President Trump’s campaign, has tested positive for the coronavirus, the president himself announced on Twitter on Sunday.
“By far the greatest mayor in New York City history, and who worked tirelessly to expose the most corrupt (by far!) Election in U.S. history, has tested positive to the virus from China. Get over yourself quickly Rudy, we will continue !!! Writes Donald Trump, who still does not recognize his defeat to Joe Biden in the presidential election on November 3, a month after the announcement of the election result.
At 76, Mr. Giuliani would have been hospitalized in Washington, according to the New York Times and the ABC channel. The announcement comes as the United States faces an unprecedented outbreak of the epidemic.
Hours earlier Giuliani, 76, was interviewed live on Fox News, showing no apparent signs of the disease. The lawyer has participated in several long hearings in recent weeks, indoors and without wearing a mask, to denounce “fraud” in key states. Frauds in no way proven by the president’s camp.
Everywhere to try to block the election of Joe Biden
On Wednesday, he appeared at the Michigan Assembly in Lansing for a hearing lasting more than four hours. In Pennsylvania, Georgia or Washington, the scene has repeated itself since the announcement of Joe Biden’s victory on November 7. Justice has so far rejected many complaints filed by Donald Trump’s team of lawyers.
Saturday evening, the outgoing president also did not have a mask during his first meeting since the presidential election, in Georgia, in front of a crowd where very few wore them. The Republican billionaire had also been diagnosed positive for Covid-19 in early October, as well as his wife Melania Trump and several members of his entourage. After three days of hospitalization, Donald Trump returned to the White House before resuming campaign meetings a few days later, with a frantic pace just before the poll.
