(Newser) – Mitt Romney remains in self-quarantine even though he announced Tuesday afternoon that he'd tested negative for COVID-19 after being in close contact with Sen. Rand Paul.

The president shared an article from Breitbart News regarding the senator's health and wrote, "This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!" (RINO meaning Republican in name only.) Multiple outlets are noting that Romney's wife, Ann, has multiple sclerosis, a condition that elevates her risk level in terms of the coronavirus. (Read more President Trump stories.)
