He later called Barron “beautiful” and “free” at a campaign rally in Iowa on Wednesday evening.
“Barron 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. 99.9%. And Barron is beautiful and he’s free.”
As for her symptoms, Melania said they were “minimal” and she hopes to resume her duties as first lady as soon as she can.
“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.”
