It adds to the 21 other people in the Trump orbit who have contracted the virus, according to the ongoing count. Two of those people have been hospitalized, Trump himself and former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ).

Trump came home from the hospital prematurely on Monday night after it was revealed that he had spread COVID-19 to at least two housekeepers. It was announced Tuesday morning that a military valet also tested positive. The Joint Chiefs of Staff are also in quarantine.
