The New York Post shared these details on Trump’s comments:
President Donald Trump on Wednesday gave his first post-White House TV interview 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.”
“Rush thought we won. And so do I, by the way. I think we won substantially. And Rush thought we won,” Trump said in the Fox News interview, after being asked what he and the radio legend discussed following the election on Nov. 3.

Newsmax added these details:
Late conservative talk show giant Rush Limbaugh was a “great gentleman, a great man,” former President Donald Trump said Wednesday, shortly after the announcement that Limbaugh had died from his year-long battle with lung cancer.
“He was very brave,” Trump told Fox News. “He could have been gone 4 months ago, really. He was fighting until the very end. He was a fighter. He was just a great gentleman.”
Limbaugh, who had often been hailed by Republicans but slammed by Democrats, had an audience that was “massive,” said Trump.
“He would just talk,” said Trump of the star’s top-rated show. “He wouldn’t just take phone calls; he would just talk for 2 hours, for 3 hours, he would just talk, and that’s not an easy thing to do.”
While on this earth President Trump awarded Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom an honor Limbaugh said was the “greatest honor of his life.”
As you go out and about today make sure you honor those around you because you never know when they’ll be gone.
