"I´m still here !"...Tested positively...

  • Trump: 'I tested very positively in another sense so — this morning. Yeah. I tested positively toward negative, right. So, I tested perfectly this morning — meaning I tested negative.'

    • President Donald Trump went on a riddle of a tangent Thursday in response to a question about how much longer he would be taking the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine.
    • After he said he planned on wrapping up the treatment in two days, Trump added that he once again tested negative for the virus — but not in a remotely straightforward way.
    • "I tested very positively in another sense so — this morning," Trump said. "Yeah. I tested positively toward negative, right. So, I tested perfectly this morning — meaning I tested negative." 

    A quick but understandable misinterpretation of President Donald Trump's latest comments could have sent the markets plummeting. 

    Trump was conducting his usual exchange with reporters before getting on Marine One — sometimes known as "chopper talk" — when he went on a riddle of a tangent.

    A reporter asked the president how much longer he would be taking hydroxychloroquine for. 

    Trump said it would be for two more days before going on a strange tangent about his testing.

    "And I'm still here. I'm still here," Trump said. "I tested very positively in another sense so — this morning. Yeah. I tested positively toward negative, right. So, I tested perfectly this morning."
