Trump has coronavirus as does Melania!
Hope Hicks has tested positive for coronavirus after traveling with Donald Trump on Air Force One to and from Tuesday’s debate.
Hicks, who serves as counselor to the president and also traveled with him to a Wednesday rally, tested positive Thursday, according to an administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Hicks is the closest aide to Trump to test positive so far. She previously served as White House communications director and re-joined the administration this year ahead of the election.
Hicks traveled with the president multiple times this week, including on Marine One, the presidential helicopter, for the Minnesota rally Wednesday, and aboard Air Force One to Tuesday night’s first presidential debate in Cleveland.
She becomes the latest in Trump’s circle to contract the virus after National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien.
White House spokesman Judd Deere said:
‘The president takes the health and safety of himself and everyone who works in support of him and the American people very seriously.”
White House Operations collaborates with the physician to the President and the White House Military Office to ensure all plans and procedures incorporate current CDC guidance and best practices for limiting Covid-19 exposure to the greatest extent possible, both on complex and when the president is traveling.“
Hicks was seen Tuesday in a car without her mask with White House senior adviser Stephen Miller and campaign adviser Jason Miller.
