Corey Lewandowski, an advisor to President Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports.

Lewandowski was spotted at the White House at the Election Night party and traveled to Philadelphia in subsequent days to challenge the vote count in Pennsylvania.

Lewandowski confirmed his diagnosis to CNBC in a text message. When CNBC asked how he was feeling, Lewandowski replied, “I feel great.”
