“The President had said earlier in the night that he planned to quarantine.”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!” Trump tweeted Thursday night.
“Hicks has traveled with the President multiple times recently, including to the debate in Cleveland on Tuesday, and was seen boarding Marine One, along with several other of the President’s closest aides — Jared Kushner, Dan Scavino and Nicholas Luna — none of whom wore masks, on Wednesday as Trump was heading to a campaign rally in Minnesota.”

Melania Trump Tweeted:
As too many Americans have done this year,
& I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.
So the guy that wants your vote is to stupid to protect his own family, and everyone around him, by simply wearing a mask.? The country couldn’t be more vulnerable to national security issues to begin with, and now this administrations ignorance rules the day during an election year. The question begs “what were you thinking”? The unfortunate answer is —- Trump doesn’t think of anyone else.
November 3 can’t come soon enough.
