After months of coronavirus recklessness, President Donald Trump revealed early Friday morning he had tested positive for COVID-19.

The White House—or at least Trump himself—seems pretty certain the president contracted the virus from one of his closest advisers, Hope Hicks.

The New York Times reports Trump advisers knew it was likely that Hicks had contracted the coronavirus Wednesday when she publicly began exhibiting symptoms during a presidential campaign trip to Duluth, Minnesota.

The White House, however, hoped it could keep Hicks’ diagnosis from becoming public, Trump aides told the Times.

[CNN and the Wall Street Journal both confirmed the White House was aware of Hicks’ positive test before Trump traveled Thursday on campaign business.*].

He was tested after he returned to the White House, but he also appeared on Sean Hannity’s TV show from the residence by telephone.

And it obviously starts at the top with a president that derides mask-wearing as a sign of weakness. »
