President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19, the president tweeted early Friday morning. It was an earth-shattering announcement mere weeks from Election Day, CBS News reports.

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

The 74years-old Mr. Trump has at least one underlying condition, placing him at a higher risk for complications, according to Centers for Disease Control guidance.
