The New York Daily News reports:
President Trump said Friday he doesn’t think that Herman Cain, who died this week after being hospitalized with the coronavirus, caught the virus when he attended the president’s Tulsa, Okla., rally last month.
“No, I don’t think he did,” Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a trip to Florida when asked if he was worried Cain contracted COVID-19 in Tulsa.
Cain, a GOP presidential candidate in 2012, died Thursday at the age of 74 after having been hospitalized in Atlanta on July 1 with the coronavirus. “He did a fantastic job. He was respected by everybody, he was loved by everybody. And we will miss Herman Cain,” Trump said.
