Melania Trump Reveals Barron Trump Tested Positive for COVID-19; and Biden Shatters Fundraising Record with Incredible $383 Million Haul.
On Wednesday Melania Trump revealed that her son, Barron, tested positive for COVID-19. The 14-year-old had previously tested negative.
“It was two weeks ago when I received the diagnosis that so many Americans across our country and the world had already received—I tested positive for COVID-19,” said Melania in a statement. “To make matters worse, my husband, and our nation’s Commander-in-Chief, received the same news.”
She continued: “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?”
“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.”
As for what Melania experienced with her own COVID-19 diagnosis, she said, “I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time. I chose to go a more natural route in terms of medicine, opting more for vitamins and healthy food.”
Joe Biden has once again shattered the monthly record for fundraising during a presidential campaign. In August, he hauled in an incredible $364.5 million, and now he has broken his own record, hauling in a massive $383 million in September.
Biden posted his thanks on Twitter, saying, “To every person who chipped in a few dollars last month — thank you. Because of your support, we raised an astounding $383 million. I’m incredibly humbled.”
“That’s more than I’ve ever raised in my whole life… I’m really humbled by it,” Biden added in a video.
Not only that, but Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon announced on Twitter that the DNC and Biden campaign entered October with an amazing $432 million cash on hand.
“Our success has been driven by our grassroots supporters. $203 million came from online donors. We had 1.1 million new donors last month — bringing the total to 5.5 million donors throughout this campaign,” said Dillon.
