Donald Trump says his lawyer Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for coronavirus
In the now customary method of communicating important information from the White House, the lame-duck president sent a tweet.
US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Trump said on Twitter on Sunday.
Giuliani is covid-19 positive, says Trump
'@RudyGiuliani, 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 said, using a term for covid-19 that has drawn backlash.

Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 6, 2020
Giuliani, 76, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The former New York mayor has been spearheading Trump's floundering effort to overturn his 3 November election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden through a flurry of lawsuits.
That work has taken Giuliani to various US states like Michigan and Arizona where he has been urging state lawmakers to stop certification of Biden's win.
