Donald Trump Says His Son Barron Had Coronavirus For 'Like Two Seconds'
He continued: "Barron Trump, you know he had the corona 19, the China virus. It's got 20 different names, but to me Corona means Italy.
"China is China, and it came from China so he had the China virus, right?
"And he had it for such a short period of time, I don't even think he knew he had it.
"Because they're young and their immune systems are strong and they fight it off."
The President of the United States addressed yet another campaign rally at a windy airfield in Des Moines, Iowa, wearing his recognisable 'Make America Great Again' baseball cap - presumably to keep his hair in check.
During this particular ramble, Trump claimed that he probably would have beaten the bout of coronavirus that saw him briefly hospitalised recently without any treatment.
However, he did go into some detail about the symptoms and experience that he had.
Trump explained: "When I had it, you might have read I had it too. I didn't love it.
"It's a little tough you know I had the temperature and you don't feel good.

"But the scariest part is, where is it going? You know you've got a 101 or 102 and then you say, 'I don't love this.'
"You haven't had a temperature in years and then all of a sudden you have it. But you see what happens to people."
However, during the stump speech - which also featured a number of stinging attacks on Presidential rival Joe Biden - he also said: "Maybe I would have been perfect anyway.
"I like to say I didn't need it [the treatment], I would have been perfect anyway because I'm so strong."
Trump claimed that he was offered a number of treatments while in the Walter Reed military hospital, but that he accepted a treatment called Regeneron.
In actual fact, he was given a number of antibiotics, steroids, and other treatments to help his illness.
The POTUS said: "And I looked at the alternatives, all things we have developed in the last seven months and one of them was Regeneron, and I said I'll take that one, because it was very early in the testing but it had great numbers.
"And I took it and they call it a therapeutic, but to me it's a cure. I felt like Superman the following morning.
"In fact I made a speech a day later - someone said he looks better now than he did two weeks ago, what the hell's going on?"
He added that he's now committed to making Regeneron and other treatments available for 'anyone who is eligible' for nothing - although Regeneron CEO Leonard Schleifer has warned that Trump's experience is 'the weakest evidence you can get' to justify widespread use of the drug to treat Covid-19.
Trump will go to the polls against Democratic candidate Biden on 3 November.
