Trump starts "quarantine process" after aide Hope Hicks tests positive for coronavirus


"Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments".

Judd Deere, the White House deputy press secretary, did not confirm Hicks' positive test results in a statement to NBC News earlier Thursday but instead described the administration's safety precautions.

"I just heard about that" and that he and the first lady have also been tested and were waiting for the results. After his interview, Trump tweeted, "In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!"

U.S. President Donald Trump has confirmed that he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.

He earlier announced he and the First Lady were going into quarantine after Hope Hicks, a senior advisor who recently traveled with the president, tested positive. "I spent a lot of time with Hope and so does the first lady, and she's tremendous". "But she is a warm person with [crowds]".

Trump says the United States has put behind the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 200,000 Americans, and he rarely wears a mask, noting that he receives frequent testing.

The unilaterally declared powers are not recognized by United Nations member states, including Armenia itself. Russian Federation is with Armenia in this war, but the revelations about Pakistan have shocked everyone.

Hicks was traveling with Trump on Air Force One just this Tuesday to fly to Cleveland for the first presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden.

Her 2018 resignation came one day after she testified before the House Intelligence Committee in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. "And you get close to them - and things happen".

Trump is not the only major world leader known to have contracted the virus. After news of her positive test broke, Trump suggested without evidence that the virus had been transmitted to Hicks during hugs from law enforcement or military personnel. "She's earned his trust", Ivanka Trump once said. He was previously scheduled to make appearances in Florida and Wisconson on Friday.

Ms Hicks was a campaign spokeswoman during Mr Trump's candidacy before becoming communications director in his White House.

Trump then said he has had "no negative effect" from massive campaign rallies with thousands of attendees not adhering to social distancing recommendations amid the ongoing pandemic.

The president largely eschews wearing masks and has criticized others who do. "When needed, I wear masks". Temperature checks of everyone entering the White House complex stopped, and while coronavirus tests continued for people who came into close proximity to Trump, including some reporters, others on campus are not tested.
