President Donald Trump reacted to the news on Sunday that Sen. Mitt Romney was currently isolated after spending time with Sen. Rand Paul who tested positive for the virus.
“Romney’s in isolation?” Trump asked. “Gee, that’s too bad.”
When the reporter asked if the president was using a sarcastic tone, the president replied, “None whatsoever.”
Romney’s office said Sunday the senator would self-quarantine after learning that Sen. Rand Paul had tested positive for the virus, noting that he had spent time with Paul and that the attending physician ordered him not to vote on the Senate floor.
