Stephen Miller, a senior policy aide to President Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus, he said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Over the last 5 days I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday. Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine," he said.
Miller, who has been regularly traveling with the president, is the latest aide in the Trump orbit to test positive for Covid-19. Eighteen people tied to the White House or campaign have tested positive, including Trump and the first lady.
Stephen Miller is one of Trump's closest aides. The president is still battling his Covid-19 infection after first showing symptoms on Thursday, according to the White House. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines say people should isolate for 10 days from the point of showing systems, and in severe cases, 20 days.
His wife, Katie, who is the communications director for Vice President Pence, tested positive in May.
