It came after Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisors, tested positive for the disease on Thursday.

Ms Hicks was with the president less than 24 hours before testing positive.

The President made the revelation on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.

He said: “I just went out with a test and the first lady went out with a test.

“So whether we have to quarantine. I just went in for a test and who knows.
