Hicks travelled with Trump on Air Force One just this Tuesday to fly to Cleveland for the first presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden. FLOTUS was also with Hope on the Marine One helicopter Wednesday when he flew back to the White House after a rally in Minnesota.

Trump is 74 years old, which puts him at higher risk of serious complications from a virus that has now killed more than 200,000 people nationwide.
