The Washington Post is reporting a Brazilian official who attended meetings with Donald Trump and Mike Pence at Mar-a-Lago on Saturday has tested positive for coronavirus.
Fabio Wajngarten, a spokesman for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, tested positive for covid-19, Brazilian officials said. Wajngarten posted a photo to his Instagram account where he is standing directly on Trump’s left side.
Bolsonaro has reportedly canceled his official agenda on Thursday and remains at the presidential palace. He is under medical observation, according to two people close to him who requested anonymity because the information isn’t public.
Trump said he “isn’t concerned” about the development, according to a White House pool report.
