WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he and first lady Melania Trump are awaiting their own test results after a top aide he spent substantial time with this week tested positive for COVID-19.
“Whether we quarantine or whether we have it, I don’t know,” Trump said during a call-in interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity on Thursday night. “I just went for a test and we’ll see what happens.”
Trump made the comments following news that Hope Hicks, one his closest aides, tested positive for the coronavirus after spending time in close proximity to him this week.
Here is what Trump just tweeted:
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 2, 2020
