Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is among the Republican senators now under quarantine after coming in contact with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Romney said that the recommendations he received from the Congressional physician was to self-isolate given the contact with Paul. He joins Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) who has been in isolation after coming in contact with a Brazilan official who had the virus. He is slated to be released from quarantine on Tuesday.
When Trump discovered that Romney was among the new officials that had to self-isolate, he responded with a snide and sarcastic slam of the senator.
“Romney is in isolation? Gee. That’s too bad,” Trump said.
Another reporter asked if it was sarcasm.
“Absolutely not,” Trump countered.
