Hope Hicks, one of President Donald Trump's top aides, has tested positive for coronavirus, three sources told CNN on Thursday.
She traveled with the President multiple times recently, including to the debate in Cleveland on Tuesday, and was seen boarding Marine One on Wednesday as Trump was heading to a campaign rally in Minnesota.
A source close to Hicks told CNN that she is experiencing symptoms and is back in Washington, DC. It is unclear how severe her symptoms are at this point. CNN has reached out to Hicks for comment.
"The President takes the health and safety of himself and everyone who works in support of him and the American people very seriously," White House spokesman Judd Deere told CNN in a statement when asked about the level of contact between Hicks and Trump.https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/01/politics/hope-hicks-positive-coronavirus/index.html
