PREVIOUS: Rudy Giuliani, the chief executive in President Donald Trump’s legal effort to overthrow the presidential election, has contracted the coronavirus, Trump said on Sunday.
The news was delivered in a tweet by Trump today. Giuliani is Trump’s personal attorney and has traveled extensively to state lawmakers to look into the president’s case. He is 76 years old.
The question that immediately arises is how this will affect Trump’s struggle to have his election fraud claims accounted for. Giuliani has attended hearings in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia. In Pennsylvania, two Republican senators who met with Giuliani on Nov. 25 said they tested positive. Giuliani did not wear a mask at these hearings
The Trump campaign didn’t say whether the legal team will be quarantined now.
Giuliani previously claimed he was taking the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure. Many high-ranking members of the administration, including President Trump, were infected with the coronavirus at one point.
Trump tweeted that Giuliani had worked “tirelessly” on legal challenges for the election results. “Better soon, Rudy, we’ll move on!” the president wrote.
