The threat of coronavirus is looming over America and not even the most protected person on the planet could be spared. In a piece of shocking news, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he and his wife, Melania Trump, had been tested positive for Covid-19. "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!" he wrote. Barely two hours before that, he had conveyed his prayers for his close-aide Hope Hicks.

"Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for COVID-19. Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!" he posted. Trump is 74 years old and that puts him at a higher risk of serious complications from a virus that has now killed more than 200,000 people nationwide. CNN's Senior Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju posted: "Given his weight and age, Trump is in the highest-risk group for hospitalization from covid, per CDC."

Now, with both POTUS and FLOTUS under the threat of the virus, people can't stop wondering if their youngest son, Barron Trump, 14, has been infected too. "If both trump and Melanie tested positive, then what about Barron? Has he been tested? Is he sick too?" one Twitter user wondered. Another said, "My thoughts tonight are with Barron Trump. At the end of the day, there's a young man worried about his parents."

One concerned Twitter user asked, "What about Barron, is he ok? We love you and President Trump. We hope you have a full, quick, and easy recovery. #Trump2020." Another well-wisher posted, "Mrs. Trump, my family and I are praying for you, your amazing husband and family. I know it pains you as Mama to be away from Barron. Take time to laugh as it's great medicine. I pray you and him be still as you take in the strong medicine of the Word of God during this time."



 



 



 



 



 

If that was not enough, many sick Internet trolls took to Twitter and targeted the teenager with a barrage of memes and jokes after the news broke. "Barron Trump 9 feet tall standing in the slightly illuminated doorway of Donald and Melania's bedroom Father, I heard you have fallen ill. Would you like a cup of warm soup, or perhaps a candy. Father, it is me your son, Barron. Ha ha ha ha," one tweet read. Another said, "We can all breathe easier knowing Barron Trump is completely safe from having any contact with his dad. #TrumpHasCovid" One even went on to joke: "Barron Trump running away from everyone that’s sick."



 



 



 

Thankfully, the White House soon confirmed that he had tested negative. "Barron has tested negative and all precautions are being taken to ensure he's kept safe and healthy," First Lady Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told Fox News about the president's teenage son.

Recently, Chelsey Clinton protectively spoke​about Barron. "I think he was 11 when his dad won, and that's a year younger than I was like when my dad went and took office," she said on the Spotify podcast 'Jemele Hill is Unbothered'. "Like, he's a kid. He's a kid, leave him alone. Who knows what he's going to be like when he grows up? That's none of our business. And I really don't like it when people comment on the clothing choices of when Sasha, Malia were there, or Barron Trump. I'm like, don't objectify this kid. I think he just turned 14. He's a teenager, leave him alone."

In such tough times, we hope the Internet puts a stop to name-calling without any concrete reason.
