First lady: Son Barron was positive for COVID, now negative


WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — President Donald Trump’s son Barron Trump tested positive for coronavirus, according to his mother first lady Melania Trump.

The first lady shared the news in a post on the White House’s official website Wednesday, where she shared her personal experience with COVID-19.

The first lady said after she and the president tested positive for the virus, her mind immediately went to their 14-year-old son Barron:

“To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think “what about tomorrow or the next day?”. My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive. Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together. He has since tested negative.”
