President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is also the president’s personal attorney, has tested positive for COVID-19.

“Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Giuliani has served as Trump’s lawyer and has made an effort to overturn last month’s election. In recent days, he has pushed his client still-unverified claims of voter fraud.

He most recently appeared maskless during a meeting with Georgia lawmakers Thursday.
