Housing Secretary Ben Carson is the newest member of the Trump Administration to contract COVID-19.

He joins White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and several other staffers who have contracted coronavirus in recent days.

The 69-year-old highest-ranking Black official in the Trump cabinet was one of hundreds who gathered in a crowded Election Night party at the White House where masks were scarce.

An aide told ABC News Monday that Ben “is in good spirits” and he “feels fortunate.”

You may recall…Herman Cain passed away in July after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
