Two of Donald Trump's billionaire donors have contracted Covid-19 months after downplaying the risk of the disease to their employees.

Richard and Liz Uihlein, conservative megadonors who own the Uline packaging company based in Wisconsin and are two of the Republican party's most significant financial backers, told employees on Wednesday that they had contracted the disease after being "around people with Covid".

Liz Uihlein, 75, said in the message to employees: "After these long months, I thought we'd never get it. Well, Trump got it," she said.
