President Trump, first lady test positive for COVID-19

President Trump, first lady test positive for COVID-19

The news comes after an adviser, Hope Hicks, tested positive.

The Biden campaign has yet to put out a public statement about the president's positive test result and it's unknown how Trump's diagnosis will impact the second debate and next week's vice president debate between Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris.

Pence sent his thoughts to the Trump family Friday, saying he's praying for their recovery.

"Karen and I send our love and prayers to our dear friends President @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS Melania Trump. We join millions across America praying for their full and swift recovery. God bless you President Trump & our wonderful First Lady Melania," Pence tweeted.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who landed Friday in Dubrovnik, Croatia, said he and his wife tested negative Friday morning for COVID-19. He said he hasn't seen the president since Sept. 15.

“We are praying for the President and First Lady that they’ll have a speedy recovery," Pompeo said Friday, according to the press pool. “I spoke with the vice president’s office this morning as well. We’re taking this obviously very seriously. And we’ll do everything we can to keep everyone safe including you all.”

In light of Trump's positive coronavirus test, the president has canceled Friday's rally. His only scheduled event is a closed press call on COVID-19 support to “vulnerable seniors.”

Stock futures immediately sold off on the news that Trump has tested positive for COVID-19.

At this time, the S&P 500 is pointing to a 1.5% lower open.

More than 7.27 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and at least 207,789 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University.

ABC News' Libby Cathey, John Santucci, Rebecca Jarvis and Katherine Faulders contributed to this report.
