Kimberly Guilfoyle a top Trump campaign official and Donald Trump Jr’s girlfriend, tested positive for the coronavirus before she was set to attend Trump’s event at Mount Rushmore on Friday, according to a campaign official.
Sergio Gor, chief of staff for the Trump Victory Finance Committee said in a statement, “after testing positive, Kimberly was immediately isolated to limit any exposure. 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.”
According to the New York Times, who first broke the story of her diagnosis, Guilfoyle did not travel with Trump on Air Force One to South Dakota and she had not had any recent contact with Donald Trump.
However, she was backstage at his rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and also for his event in Phoenix.
Sources told CNN, Guilfoyle and Trump Jr. have been hosting many high dollar fundraising events since Tuesday of this week in Montana and South Dakota. Guilfoyle did not wear a mask to any of those events.
This comes as another Trump campaign official, Herman Cain announced he was being hospitalized after testing positive for the virus, 9 days after attending Trump’s rally in Tulsa.
