NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Trump on Monday said that Rudy Giuliani, who was hospitalized in Washington on Sunday, is "doing very well."

"Rudy's doing well, he's doing very well," Trump told reporters after a White House ceremony honoring wrestling legend Dan Gable with the Medal of Freedom. "No temperature and he actually called me earlier this morning. Was the first call I got."

The president's lawyer and former New York City mayor tweeted Sunday night, "Thank you to all my friends and followers for all the prayers and kind wishes.
I’m getting great care and feeling good. Recovering quickly and keeping up with everything."

Multiple outlets, including ABC News, reported that Giuliani, 76, was admitted to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. It is unclear when Giuliani was diagnosed with the potentially-deadly virus or what his current condition is.

".@RudyGiuliani, by 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 tweeted on Sunday, making the initial announcement about Giuliani's condition.

Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, has been Trump's personal attorney for the past several years, most recently challenging the 2020 Election results on the president's behalf.

Giuliani’s diagnosis comes a little over two weeks after his son, Andrew Giuliani, a special assistant to Trump, tested positive for the virus.
