During an interview with Meet the Press on Sunday, when asked about the president's delay in encouraging mask wearing, McDaniel said she and her family wear masks. "This isn't a Republican or Democrat thing whether or not to wear a mask. What it is is it's about personal freedom," McDaniel told host Chuck Todd.
News of McDaniel’s positive COVID-19 test comes on the heels of the announcement that President Trump and First Lady both tested positive, as well as senior advisor Hope Hicks.
