The world woke up Friday morning to news of US President Donald Trump testing positive for coronavirus.
POTUS took to Twitter to break the news that both he and his wife contracted the deadly virus and that their quarantine and recovery process begins immediately.
The news of Trump and his wife led some NBA players to react on social media.
Former players Kendrick Perkins and Channing Frye were in complete shock on Twitter:
Did Trump really get corona?

Reminder to keep wearing my mask 📝

The US leads in the entire world in total number of positive cases of COVID-19 with a total of 7.2 million and 207,000+ deaths so far.
POTUS has been seen not wearing a mask in public which a lot of his supporters have also chosen to do which explains McCollum’s mask jab.
With Trump testing positive, hopefully, more people take this whole issue seriously and practice the necessary protocol to mitigate the spread of the virus in the US and the world over.
