Former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain has died apparently from complications related to COVID-19. Cain, 74, was hospitalized earlier this month after attending a Trump rally in June.

Cain's website announced his passing on Friday morning.

Cain had attended President Trump's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Cain's team said he was informed that he had tested positive on June 29. His team added: "There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus.

Cain was hospitalized in Atlanta on July 1.

Uninformed Twitter users bashed conservatives and others who refuse to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Herman Cain died because of his blind loyalty to Trump. He made a decision to attend," a Twitter user wrote.
