The Washington Post reports:
After White House officials learned of Hicks’s symptoms, Trump and his entourage flew Thursday to New Jersey, where he attended a fundraiser at his golf club in Bedminster and delivered a speech. Trump was in close contact with dozens of other people, including campaign supporters, at a roundtable event.
The president did not wear a mask Thursday, including at the events at his golf course and on the plane, officials said. 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.
A senior administration official said the White House was not aware of any additional positive cases late Thursday, although aides are being tested and contacts traced. Some aides are expected to stay at home for the foreseeable future, and presidential and political travel will be canceled, officials said.
A small group of White House officials knew by Thursday morning that Hope Hicks had contracted Covid-19, according to @kaitlancollins — but Trump still traveled for a fundraiser, and his press secretary still held a news briefing at the White House https://t.co/KprDlD4LJk
