While it has been reported that Donald Trump contracted COVID-19 from White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, the New York Times is sharing evidence that suggests it was the other way around.
The Times offers a visual that shows a timeline of events of when and where everyone that tested positive for coronavirus made contact with one another.
Hicks reportedly traveled with Trump on Air Force One after testing negative for COVID-19 Tuesday for the debate in Cleveland. She was spotted without a mask. As his confidant and counselor, Hicks joined Trump at campaign stops in Ohio and Minnesota before testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. Trump tested positive for COVID-19 two days later – on Friday – if the timeline is accurate.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel reportedly received a positive test on Wednesday afternoon after accompanying Trump to campaign events the week prior.
