President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and close aide Hope Hicks have tested positive for the coronavirus. Trump plans to continue carrying out his duties but is expected to remain home for two weeks and has canceled campaign events as doctors watch him at the White House. The president has repeatedly downplayed the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and often contradicted public health experts and members of his own administration in their more grave warnings about the virus.

Trump's positive coronavirus test adds him to a growing list of world leaders who have contracted the virus, including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

Job growth slowed in September as U.S. employers added just 661,000 new workers. Job gains have declined in each of the past three months, showcasing an economic recovery that is starting to lose momentum. And a new wave of layoffs is looming as the coronavirus pandemic continues to weigh on sectors such as airlines, theme parks and other businesses.
