President Donald Trump revealed Sunday on Twitter that his campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani had tested positive for coronavirus.

“Rudy Giuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!”

The New York Times reported that Giuliani is getting treated for the virus at the Georgetown University Medical Center.

Giuliani also shared the news on Twitter, thanking his friends and followers.

“Thank you to all my friends and followers for all the prayers and kind wishes. I’m getting great care and feeling good,” he wrote. “Recovering quickly and keeping up with everything.”

In recent weeks, Giuliani has traveled to several swing states for hearings with state and local Republicans alleging voter fraud and voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

Giuliani held a hearing in Michigan on Wednesday before he tested positive for the virus.

Trump’s legal team said in a statement that Giuliani tested negative before his trip to Arizona, Michigan, and Georiga.

“Mayor Giuliani tested negative twice immediately preceding his trip to Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia. The Mayor did not experience any symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 until more than 48 hours after his return,” the statement from the legal team read.
