Pennsylvania Lawmaker Informed of Coronavirus Diagnosis While Meeting with Trump

A Republican lawmaker from Pennsylvania abruptly left a White House meeting with President Trump after he was informed that he had tested positive for COVID-19, The Associated Press reported Sunday.

Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano (R) was informed during the Wednesday meeting with Trump about the president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results that he had tested positive for the virus and was led away by White House medical staff, one source at the meeting told the AP.

“The president instantly called the White House doctor in and he took them back to, I guess, the medical place,” the person said.

White House officials would not confirm whether the president or any others would self-isolate after coming into contact with Mastriano. The meeting continued for about a half-hour without Mastriano after the senator left, according to the AP.
