A reporter who traveled with President Trump on his recent trip to Tampa Bay, Florida, has tested positive for coronavirus, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Zeke Miller of the Associated Press told the White House Correspondents Association about the unidentified reporter’s diagnosis in a letter.

“We’ve already reached out to those who were in the pools with this individual, and the White House Medical Unit is conducting additional contact tracing and providing follow-on tests for those in the pools and potentially exposed,” Miller’s message read.

Wilton Simpson, Pinellas County Commissioner Kathleen Peters and State Rep. Danny Perez were also present in the room.

During an appearance on "The View" to promote his new book on Supreme Court justices, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was faced with questions about the coronavirus and the governors of Florida and Texas who allowed reopening despite the danger.

Cruz pivoted to blame Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo (NY), saying that under his leadership far more people died.

Co-host Joy Behar shouted over Cruz as he filibustered that he was "deflecting,"

Whoopi Goldberg then cut in saying, "had the man who is running the country right now given us this information in January when he had it when we could have maybe done something a little differently, it might have worked differently.
