Donald Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, has tested positive for Covid-19.

According to Bloomberg, Don Jr is currently in isolation after a positive coronavirus test earlier in the week.

Three people familiar with the matter have confirmed the news to Bloomberg and a spokesperson for Trump Jr has confirmed he is asymptomatic for Covid-19.

"Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result," the spokesperson said.

"He's been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines."

The news comes a few hours after it was announced that Andrew Giuliani, son of Rudy Giuliani and an adviser to Donald Trump, has also tested positive.

Several members of the Trump and Pence administration have tested positive for the virus in the last few weeks, including the president and the First Lady themselves.

Several of Pence's aides have been infected, including his press secretary and chief of staff. Pence himself has not.
