President Trump and Melania were prompted to test after Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisers, tested positive for the disease. The President had been in quarantine since then.

Hicks travels regularly with the president on Air Force One and, along with other senior aides, accompanied him to Cleveland for the first presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden on Tuesday.
