REPORT: Over 130 Secret Service Officers Infected With COVID-19 Or Quarantining After Trump Campaign Season


More than 130 Secret Service officers are infected with the coronavirus or quarantining due to exposure after President Donald Trump’s extensive campaign travel, the Washington Post reported Friday.
