Based on whom he met with just days ago, President Donald Trump may very well be the next notable American to be diagnosed with coronavirus.
Over the weekend, the president met with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his top staffers, including press secretary Fabio Wajngarten, who can be seen standing alongside Trump in the Instagram photo below:

Five days later on Thursday, the Brazilian daily newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo revealed that Wajngarten has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Fabio Wajngarten, President Jair Bolsonaro’s communications secretary, will have his samples submitted for a second test for final confirmation, Estado reported,” Bloomberg has confirmed.
“He was part of the presidential entourage during a trip to Florida earlier this week. Pictures posted on social media show him side-by-side with Trump, wearing a ‘Make Brazil Great Again’ hat.”
Other outlets have obtained the same confirmation.
Fabio Wajngarten, the press secretary for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, has tested positive for coronavirus, two sources tell CNN. He was at dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago Saturday night, took a photo with him and later attended Kimberly Guilfoyle’s birthday party.

The president has for his part reportedly dismissed any concerns about contracting the coronavirus.
“Let’s put it this way: I’m not concerned,” he told reporters at the White House early Thursday afternoon.
Trump asked about interacting with infected Brazilian official:
“We did nothing very unusual. We sat next to each other for a period of time. … Let’s put it this way: I’m not concerned.”

Members of the increasingly radical left have meanwhile taken to celebrating the news in the hopes that Trump contracts the virus and then dies.
Look (*Horrible people warning);

These are likely the same sorts of “tolerant, loving” liberals who cheered the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, cheered the death of former first lady Barbara Bush and even cheered the death of former FNC host Eric Bolling’s son.
Unluckily for these demented left-wingers, the evidence suggests that — even if Trump were to contract the coronavirus — he’d probably survive it without complications.
The Americans most at risk for complications are elderly ones who’re already suffering from complications of some sort or another.
“People over age 60, and particularly those with pre-existing health conditions, appear to be most vulnerable to the virus, which has spread to more than 110,000 people in at least 97 countries,” NBC News reported Tuesday.
While the president is 73, he has no pre-existing conditions. If anything, his health is above average for his age.
The last time the president underwent a physical exam in February of 2019, he performed exceptionally well.
“After taking into account all the laboratory results, examinations and specialist recommendations, it is my determination that the President remains in very good health overall,” physician to the president Dr. Sean P. Conley announced afterward.
Moreover, most coronavirus patients wind up recovering.
Regardless, instead of worrying about himself, the president has been implementing policies to contain the spread of coronavirus.
“To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. These restrictions will be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground,” he announced from the Oval Office on Wednesday.
He’s also reportedly taken to canceling events that could hasten the virus’s spread.
JUST IN: White House: “Out of an abundance of caution from the coronavirus outbreak, the president has decided to cancel his upcoming events in Colorado and Nevada.”
