President Trump said he hasn’t seen national security adviser Robert O'Brien recently, and he doesn’t know when his national security adviser first tested positive for Covid-19.
“I haven’t seen him lately,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House for North Carolina Monday afternoon. “I have not seen him, I’m calling him later,” he added.
Trump responded “I don’t know” when asked by a reported when O’Brien first tested positive.
Some background: As CNN previously reported, O'Brien's diagnosis marks the highest-ranking Trump administration official known to have tested positive. It's unclear when O'Brien last met with Trump.
Their last public appearance together was over two weeks ago during a visit to US Southern Command in Miami on July 10.
