On Wednesday, first lady Melania Trump announced that Barron Trump had tested positive for COVID-19.
Nearly two weeks ago on Oct. 1, President Donald Trump and the first lady announced they had both tested positive for the disease. The positive tests for the president and the first lady came just hours after the White House announced that senior aide Hope Hicks had come down with the virus after traveling with the president several times in the prior week.
Now, it appears that the president’s son had contracted the virus as well.
In a White House statement published Wednesday, Melania Trump explained what contracting the disease was like and how it affected her and her family.
To all who have reached out – thank you. Here is my personal experience with COVID-19 :https://t.co/XUysq0KVaY

“To all who have reached out – thank you. Here is my personal experience with COVID-19,” the first lady tweeted out along with the link to the White House statement.
Melania Trump’s statement, which reads like a personal essay, detailed her worst fears coming true when her son, Barron, tested positive for the disease.
“Naturally my mind went immediately to our son. 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?’” she wrote.
“My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive.”
Melania confirmed that Barron thankfully “exhibited no symptoms.”
“He has since tested negative,” she wrote.
