"As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19," she wrote.
"We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together."
Despite several supporters sending in their well wishes, some took the opportunity to mock Melania and her husband.
Some users replied with photographs of the infamous jacket the first lady wore, which had "I really don't care, do u?" written on the back.
Others dubbed the announcement as "fake news" asking "how can you test positive for a Democratic hoax?"
Users even slammed people sending the Trump's well wishes.
Republican JT Lewis tweeted the couple: "We will pray for you, true Americans love our POTUS AND FLOTUS!"
However, one user hit back slamming "no we do not." Another wrote "they don't deserve prayers."
One supporter said "We are praying for you both," before receiving the response of "Lol I'm praying for the virus."
Trump 74, revealed their positive test results hours after it was revealed his top aide Hope Hicks tested positive for COVID.
Vice President Mike Pence has since tested negative, while reports indicate Joe Biden will be tested due to possible exposure during the presidential debate on Tuesday.
Trump and Melania's son Barron, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner have all tested negative, according to the White House.
Trump revealed that he and Melania will remain in isolation in what could set back his campaign with just 32 days until the presidential election.
"Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19," Trump tweeted on Friday morning.
"We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.
"We will get through this TOGETHER!" he added.
