"We knew when he was first hospitalized with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight", the statement read.

Online media outlet Newsmax, where Cain was set to launch a weekly program, also wrote about his passing. "He was a very special person. and unfortunately he passed away from a thing called the China virus", Trump said, using the moniker he often ascribes to the new coronavirus, which was first detected in China.

The announcement failed to mention when and where did Cain contract the virus. owever, it is worth noting that he attended President Donald Trump's indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma less than two weeks before he was tested positive for the virus. Cain attended the rally and was photographed in the audience, sitting close to a number of other supporters, none of them wearing masks.

He had also previously been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer in 2006.

"We send out prayers to Herman's great wife, Gloria".
