Following the news of his passing, former President Donald Trump dialed in to Fox News to remember the late host.

“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.”
