‘Positively stupid’: Trump sparks confusion over his COVID-19 test results
President Donald Trump

President Donald Trump fumbled his explanation for whether he had tested positive for the coronavirus.


The president told reporters Thursday that he had "tested very positively" for the potentially deadly virus, but then tried to clear up that he was not infected with COVID-19.

"I tested very positively in another sense," Trump told reporters. "So this morning, I tested positively toward negative, right? So, no, I tested perfectly this morning, meaning I tested negative. But that's a way of saying it -- positively toward the negative."

Social media users were confused.
