Former President Donald Trump spoke for the first time publicly since leaving office to pay tribute to conservative radio superstar Rush Limbaugh.
In an interview on Fox News, Trump reflected on his brief, although impactful, relationship with Limbaugh, who died Wednesday following a long battle with lung cancer.
The former president said he had spoken with the talk radio icon just “three or four days ago.”
“I called him just to find out — you know, his fight was very, very courageous, and he was very, very sick, and, you know, from diagnosis on, it was just something that was not going to be beaten,” Trump said.
“He was very brave. I mean, he, in theory, could have been gone four months ago, really. He was fighting till the very end. He was a fighter. He was just a great gentleman.”
