Giuliani tests positive for COVID, Trump tweets
"Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!" the president tweeted.
WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who is leading President Donald Trump’s legal push to challenge the election results, has tested positive for coronavirus, Trump announced via Twitter on Sunday.
Giuliani, 76, has been traveling across the country in recent weeks, arguing on behalf of the president in courtrooms and state legislative hearings.
The positive diagnosis will sideline Trump’s lawyer ahead of some important dates for the president’s legal team — Tuesday, when all legal challenges and recounts must be resolved, and Dec. 14, when members of the Electoral College meet and begin casting votes.
