Steve Hilton says Trump got the virus “fighting for our future…not hiding in a basement”

During a fiery segment of his show, Steve Hilton argued President Trump’s recovery is a “powerful symbol of America’s recovery.”

“Yes he got the virus because he was out there fighting for the future of the country not hiding in a basement,” Hilton said.

“He’s been saying for months we need to be open not closed, that we’ve got to beat the virus, not surrender to it. Of course that has risks, but that’s the American way,” he added.
