President of the United States (US) Donald Trump has officially done self-quarantine. Not only himself, this was also done by his wife, Melania.
This happened after Hope Hicks’ close aide and adviser tested positive for the corona virus. He was previously with Trump on a number of flights since Tuesday (29/9/2020) and Wednesday (30/09/2020).
The tweet comes after the White House revealed Trump’s schedule for today. Includes White House meetings, round tables with supporters and an evening campaign rally in Florida.
Trump’s adviser tested positive first
Citing CNBC International, the White House did not immediately respond to questions about whether the presidential quarantine would affect in the cancellation of the event. Trump himself admitted that Hicks was positive for the corona in an interview on Fox News.
