White House senior adviser Stephen Miller has tested positive for the coronavirus, he confirmed in a statement on Tuesday.

Why it matters: Miller's diagnosis adds to the long and growing list of Trump administration officials who have contracted the virus as the White House scrambles to respond to the outbreak.

  • Miller says he has been self-isolating and working remotely for the last five days, and tested negative for the virus every day through Monday.
  • His wife, Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary Katie Miller, tested positive for COVID-19 in May.
