Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani admitted to hospital with Covid-19

RUDY GIULIANI has been taken to hospital after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

The former Mayor of New York City, who is now acting as President Donald Trump's most senior lawyer, experienced symptoms of the virus late last week after being admitted to Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Mr Giuliani later tested positive for Covid-19, weeks after his son contracted the virus.

The 76-year-old said he was "recovering quickly" in a tweet following his diagnosis on Sunday.

"Thank you to all my friends and followers for all the prayers and kind wishes," he wrote.

"I'm getting great care and feeling good. Recovering quickly and keeping up with everything."

Mr Trump also tweeted his support.

"@RudyGiuliani, by the 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!!!"

Trump, together with his legal team, says he still intends to challenge the result of last month's presidential election, citing voter fraud.

The outgoing president is running out of time to officially launch his legal challenge, with the Electoral College set to meet in a few days to certify Joe Biden's victory.

Aside from a number of continuous accusations, Trump, nor his team, have provided any concrete evidence of electoral fraud thus far.
