WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Corey Lewandowski, one of President Donald Trump’s most trusted advisers, tested positive for the coronavirus, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday.
Lewandowski, who served as Trump’s campaign manager for a portion of his 2016 bid for the White House and was advising his current re-election effort, was in Philadelphia challenging ballot-counting procedures last week and believes he was infected while there, the source said.
The source said Lewandowski, who tested positive on Wednesday, was experiencing no symptoms.
