The announcement that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 jolted millions of Americans as they woke up Friday morning.
As the commentary section went to press early Friday, we realized it was important to put politics aside and wish them both a speedy recovery and time to heal.

We can focus on the issues — the pandemic now being even more front and center — another day.
For now, let’s take a moment to think about those who have been infected by this horrible disease — including the president and First Lady — and recognize the importance of finding a vaccine and taking the proper precautions to keep everyone safe.
