President Trump Says He and First Lady Will Be Quarantined
DEVELOPING STORY: President Trump announced on Twitter tonight that he and the First Lady will be quarantined over a China virus scare.
It was announced earlier this evening that Hope Hicks had tested positive for the virus. The president called that news “terrible.”
“The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results,” he tweeted. “In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process.”
Earlier in the evening the president referenced Ms. Hicks during an interview with radio host Sean Hannity.
“She did test positive, I just heard about this. She tested positive. She’s a hard worker. Lot of masks, she wears masks a lot but she tested positive. Then I just went out with a test. I’ll see — you know, because we spent a lot of time — and the first lady just went out with a test also. So whether we quarantine or whether we have it, I don’t know,” Trump said.
The president had been scheduled to hold a rally Friday night in Orlando.
