The president’s wife released a statement titled on Wednesday titled, My personal experience with Covid-19, in which she wrote about her time recovering from the virus.

She said about Barron, ‘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.’

All three members of the Trump family who live in the white, the president, the first lady and their son, have now had coronavirus.

She also confirmed that she has tested negative and said she plans on resuming her duties soon.

‘When my husband was taken to Walter Reed as a precaution, I spent much of my time reflecting on my family,’ she wrote. ‘I also thought about the hundreds of thousands of people across our country who have been impacted by this illness that infects people with no discrimination.’

She said that she is praying for the country and everyone who is ‘grappling with Covid-19 and any other illnesses or challenges.

‘I encourage everyone to continue to live the healthiest life they can,’ Melania said. ‘A balanced diet, fresh air, and vitamins really are vital to keep our bodies healthy. For your complete well-being, compassion and humility are just as important in keeping our minds strong.’

Melania Trump did not make any note of Trump’s erratic behavior since the President left Walter Reed last week.

He was seen gasping for air on a white house balcony, swearing on a live radio show and dancing at a Florida rally, on top of sending out dozens of tweets per day.

Trump has also claimed that a vaccine will be coming soon after he was given experimental drugs to treat his coronavirus symptoms.

This all comes off the heels of the now infamous Rose Garden ceremony to announce Trump’s Supreme Court Justice pick Amy Coney Barrett.

The ceremony is now being coined as a superspreader event, where multiple high-profile Republican figures tested positive with the virus.

Some of these include Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Trump’s political counselor, Kellyanne Conway and many other lawmakers.
