On Thursday, the president Trump gave an interview to host Sean Hannity on the Fox News, in which he told about spending “a lot of time” with Hicks. The president also told that he was waiting for the results of his test.

“When soldiers and law enforcement comes up to her, you know, she wants to treat them great,” Trump said of Hicks. “Not say, ‘Stay away, I can’t get near you.’ It’s a very, very tough disease.”
