Talk about an October surprise! Donald and Melania Trump are going to self quarantine after his close aide Hope Hicks tested positive for COVID-19 and has been in close contact with the president.
Maybe President Donald Trump‘s hatred of wearing masks to protect against the spread of COVID-19 will come back to haunt him. Now that his close aide Hope Hicks has tested positive for the virus, Trump and wife Melania, 50, said they will go into quarantine until the couple gets the results back from new COVID-19 tests. The 74-year-old tweeted on Oct. 1, “Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for Covid 19. Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!” Now the world waits to see if the President of the United States has COVID-19.
Hicks travelled with Trump on Tuesday aboard Air Force One to Ohio for his first presidential debate against Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden, which took place on Sept. 29. Hope was with him the following day on a campaign stop in Duluth, MN and began feeling symptoms on the flight back to Washington D.C.
“She tested positive and I just went out with a test . . . so whether we quarantine or whether we have it, I don’t know,” Trump said. “So I just went for a test and we’ll see what happens. Who knows? . . . We spend a lot of time with Hope, so we’ll see what happens,” Trump told Fox News’s Sean Hannity during a live interview on Oct. 1.
