Trump says he and First Lady will begin “quarantine process” after Hope Hicks tests positive for COVID-19

“President Trump’s counselor and confidant Hope Hicks has tested positive for COVID-19, after two days of traveling with him to Ohio and Minnesota. President Trump tweeted Thursday night that he and the First Lady would ‘begin our quarantine process’ while awaiting test results,” as CBS News and others are reporting.

“Hicks was photographed without a mask after Air Force One landed in Cleveland for the presidential debate, and she also traveled with the president aboard Marine One and Air Force One en route to Minnesota Wednesday. Bloomberg first reported Hicks’ positive test. 

“Hicks tested negative for COVID-19 Wednesday morning, which is why she boarded Air Force One, according to a senior administration official. But she then developed symptoms some time during the day and took a second test that came back positive.

“Mr. Trump acknowledged Thursday night in an interview with Fox News that Hicks ‘did test positive.'”
