Jared Kushner, Ivanka and Barron Trump Test Negative for COVID

The White House has confirmed that two of President Donald Trump's children, Ivanka and Barron Trump, have tested negative for coronavirus following the president's diagnosis.

Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner, who works as a White House advisor along with his wife, has also tested negative for the virus.

Speaking to Fox News about the president's teenage son, first lady spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "Barron has tested negative and all precautions are being taken to ensure he's kept safe and healthy."

There were fears that Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter, could have been exposed to the virus, along with several other of Trump's family and campaign figures, after they traveled with the president's aide Hope Hicks before she tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday.

Ivanka Trump was one of several people not to have worn a mask while sitting in the audience at Tuesday's presidential debate between President Trump and Joe Biden in Cleveland, Ohio.

The test result follow the announcement that Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen have also tested negative for the virus.

President Trump announced that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for coronavirus and would "begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately."

In a tweet, Ivanka Trump said: "Praying for the swift recovery of my father and Melania and for all those impacted by COVID-19.

"As they fight this together, the President will continue to fight for the people of this great country."

Earlier on Friday, Pence's press secretary Devin O'Malley tweeted that the vice president had also tested negative for coronavirus.

He wrote: "As has been routine for months, Vice President Pence is tested for COVID-19 every day. This morning, Vice President Pence and the Second Lady tested negative for COVID-19. Vice President Pence remains in good health and wishes the Trumps well in their recovery."

Pence would be next in line to temporarily take up presidential duties, should President Trump become too ill. President Trump's physician, Sean Conley, has said that he would "expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering."

Meanwhile, Biden and his wife Jill said they wished the president and the first lady a "swift recovery" from the virus.

"We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family," Biden tweeted.
