US President delivered dramatic news in a way that left citizens pondering whether they actually understood his message, mentioned he does not have the coronavirus.

Iran PressAmerica: Trump described his test results as 'perfect'. In the end, the President finally clarified that he had again tested negative for the coronavirus.

"I tested very positively in another sense this morning. Yeah. I tested positively toward negative, right. So. I tested perfectly this morning. Meaning I tested negative," Trump quoted.

For the past several weeks, the president and Vice President Mike Pence have been tested daily after Trump’s personal valet and Pence’s spokeswoman each tested positive for the virus, which has infected more than 1.5 million Americans and killed more than 94,000. 

Trump has been taking the controversial anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventive to combat contraction of the virus, despite warnings from doctors and public health experts that its side effects could be lethal.

US president said he is a day away from completing a two-week regimen of hydroxychloroquine, which was prescribed after consultation with the White House physician.
