President Trump says his lawyer Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for coronavirus.
Mr Trump tweeted: “@RudyGiuliani, by far the greatest mayor in the history of NYC, and who has been working tirelessly exposing the most corrupt election (by far!) in the history of the USA, has tested positive for the China Virus. Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!”
Mr Giuliani has been at the forefront of Mr Trump’s efforts to overturn the US election result, having repeated baseless claims that fraud was a factor in Joe Biden’s victory.
The 76-year-old said at a news conference in November: “The most important thing here is that this has been a massive attack on the integrity of the voting system in the greatest democracy on Earth.
“The people who did this have committed one of the worst crimes that I have ever seen or observed.”
The comments were part of a running theme since Mr Trump failed to secure re-election, but no firm evidence of fraud has been provided.
