Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski tests positive for coronavirus

Corey Lewandowski, President Trump's 2016 campaign manager who's still close with the president, has tested positive for COVID-19, The New York Times first reported and Lewandowski later confirmed.

Lewandowski's diagnosis comes after he attended Trump's election-night party in the White House, as well as spent days holding press conferences in Philadelphia as part of Trump's legal challenges to the election. Lewandowski reportedly believes he contracted the virus while in Philadelphia, but told CNN he feels fine and will stay home to avoid spreading the virus.

It's unclear just when Lewandowski contracted the virus or when he would've become contagious with it. But former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and everyone else hanging around Lewandowski over the past few days appear to be at risk of exposure. Video of Lewandowski's appearance at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping press conference shows a maskless Giuliani hanging awfully close, while Lewandowski's other rallies featured a mass of Trump supporters around him as he yelled through a megaphone.
