Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday gave his first TV interview as an ex-president to remember radio host Rush Limbaugh after his death at age 70 from cancer.
Trump said in the Fox News interview that he spoke with Limbaugh “three or four days ago” before he died of Stage 4 lung cancer.
“Three or four days ago I called him,” Trump said. “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 beat, but you wouldn’t know it.”
Trump added that Limbaugh “told me he was married to an angel.”
“Every time I spoke to him, he would tell me how great she was. She took such great care. He was very brave — I mean he in theory could have been done four months ago, really. He just, he was fighting till the very end. He was a fighter,”
