President Donald Trump spoke out about Hope Hicks testing positive for the coronavirus after spending the week traveling with her. He also revealed that he and First Lady Melania Trump had just taken a test for the virus and were reportedly awaiting the results.
“She did test positive,” Trump acknowledged to Fox News host Sean Hannity in a Thursday night phone interview, referring to his aide, Hicks. “She is a hard worker, a lot of masks, she wears masks a lot. But she tested positive.” However, Hicks was photographed in close proximity to the president as they traveled to a campaign rally in Minnesota earlier in the week — she was not wearing a mask.
