Donald Trump has said the one person more famous than him is Jesus Christ.
Speaking at a rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Thursday afternoon, the POTUS told his supporters about a recent interaction he'd had saying: "Somebody said to me the other day, 'you are the most famous person in the world by far'.
"I said, 'no, I'm not.' He said, 'yes, you are.' I said, 'no, I am not.' He said, 'who is more famous?' I said, 'Jesus Christ'."
At this point, Trump's supporters broke out into applause, while he said: "I'm not taking any chances. I'm not having any arguments."
He then laughed, looked to the sky and added: "And let me look up and say, 'it is not even close'."
Elsewhere on the campaign trail, Trump claimed that his son Barron had coronavirus for 'like two seconds', following claims the 14-year-old had tested positive for the virus.
Trump, who caught the virus alongside his wife Melania, told supporters during a rally last night: "Barron's tested positive. Within, like, two seconds it was Barron is just fine now. He's tested negative, right?
"Because it happens. People have it and it goes. Get the kids back to school."
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."
Opening up about his experience with the virus he said: "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."
Trump faces democratic candidate Joe Biden in the US election on 3 November.
