Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle said her coronavirus diagnosis is a “blessing from God” in a Trump campaign video Wednesday.

Guilfoyle said on the Trump campaign show “The Right View” that testing positive has helped her to “understand what other people are going through and those who have lost loved ones,” according to the Hill.

Guilfoyle, a member of the Trump campaign, tested positive for the coronavirus July 3 ahead of President Donald Trump’s Mount Rushmore Fourth of July speech. (Related: Exclusive: Kimberly Guilfoyle Reveals What It’s Like Being Close To The Trumps)

After briefly talking about her diagnosis, Guilfoyle said she empathizes with families coping with the coronavirus, she told “The Right View.”

“As many of you know, we’ve lost a lot of lives around the globe to this pandemic. It’s a very serious situation and my heart does go out to each and every one of the families who have been coping and suffering through this,” Guilfoyle said.

“It’s a very trying time, I know, for so many families, especially those who have lost loved ones and are making sense of the virus,” she said. Guilfoyle also said she is currently asymptomatic.

After testing positive, Guilfoyle said the president reached out to her to make sure she was alright, according to the Hill.

“I believe in President Donald Trump. He was incredibly loving to me, very nice,” Guilfoyle said.

“He called right away to check in on me, and to make sure that I was doing ok and had everything that I needed, and I know personally that the president is doing everything he possibly can for all American families and to usher along a vaccine while balancing the safe reopening of America,” Guilfoyle said.

The Trump campaign did not respond immediately to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
