Trump Campaign Adviser David Bossie Tests Positive for COVID-19 as Latest White House Outbreak Grows

David Bossie, who was tapped last week to lead the Trump campaign’s post-election legal battles, is the latest person in the White House’s orbit to test positive for the coronavirus.

Bossie, who was Trump’s deputy campaign manager in 2016, has reportedly been inside the campaign’s headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, “several times” over the last week. According to Bloomberg, Bossie was diagnosed on Sunday after taking a test at the White House—which is required for all visitors seeing the president.

Citing two sources, NBC News also reported Bossie’s diagnosis means the Republican insider has been “sidelined” from his role in the post-election legal fight he was tasked to lead.

“Because he can’t be at the campaign headquarters and he can’t be in the Oval Office [due to his diagnosis] Dave’s no longer a part of the decision-making process,” one source said.

On Friday, it also emerged that the president’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, had tested positive for the deadly disease. In addition to Meadows, who routinely shrugged off wearing a mask, at least five White House aides have tested positive for the deadly virus in the days before and after Nov. 3. The list includes Nick Trainer, who worked on the president’s campaign.
