Rep Gohmert tests positive for coronavirus ahead of Texas visit with Trump

Description:

Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert tests positive for COVID-19 before planning to fly to Texas with President Trump; John Roberts reports.


US President Donald Trump and the first lady tested positive for coronavirus Thursday. Trump tweeted that he and his wife Melania would begin their "recovery process immediately" and "get through this together."
The Trumps had entered quarantine earlier in the day after senior aide Hope Hicks had also tested positive. She spent a substantial amount of time in close proximity with Trump this week, including traveling with him to a campaign rally on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported, citing an administration official. She also traveled with Trump several other days this week, including on board the presidential helicopter Marine One as well as on Air Force One.
If Trump were unable to do his job — even due to a short illness — the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution allows the vice president becomes the president.
