David Bossie, who was hired last week to lead the Trump campaign’s post-election legal battles, has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus, aaccording to Bloomberg.
Bossie, who was Trump’s deputy campaign manager in 2016, was reportedly inside the campaign headquarters “multiple times” last week. It also emerged on Friday that the president’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, had tested positive for the deadly disease.
Bossie, a longtime Republican insider, has been tasked with coordinating the wave of lawsuits the campaign has brought in several battlefield states to try to prevent the mail-in vote counting, despite President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
Bossie’s diagnosis comes hours after another Trump insider, 69-year-old Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, tested positive for the coronavirus. He attended an indoor election night at the White House on Tuesday with Meadows. It is not immediately known where one of the three Trumpkins contracted COVID-19.
“I spoke to my brother Dr Carson earlier and he is doing very well. He is so grateful to have access to powerful therapies. We also pray for the millions of people who celebrated this weekend and may have exposed themselves to COVID19, ”said Armstrong Williams, who advised the retired neurosurgeon from the 2016 presidential campaign, tweeted Monday.
