Early last week, a YouTube user named James Hunter shared a seven-minute video of Barron Trump on the campaign trail with his father.

The footage featured the 10-year old acting restless in a chair, clapping without having his hands touch and exhibiting other signs on the spectrum of Autisim.

This is what Hunter wondered and alleged

THG reports The video then went mainstream after Donald Trump rival Rosie O’Donnell linked it on her Twitter account, asking followers whether Barron was actually Autistic.

This created quite an uproar, although Rosie later tried to explain that her own daughter is Autistic and she was simply saying that Barron’s diagnosis might help bring attention to this disease.

O’Donnell didn’t hide her disdain for the President-Elect, but said she has no “ill will” toward members of his family.

But she still helped the video go viral, which prompted Melania Trump to say she would sue Hunter if he did not remove it from the Internet.

Via a statement through her lawyer, Melania also plainly said that Barron Trump is NOT Autistic On Tuesday, not only did Hunter obey Melania’s instruction that he take down the video, but he also offered a very public and heartfelt apology

He even put it on YouTube.

The video is titled “My Apology To Melania and Barron Trump” and it is comprised of the following words:

“On November 11, 2016, I posted a YouTube video titled: ‘Is Barron Trump Autistic #StopTheBullying.’

“In the video, I suggested Barron Trump might suffer from autism. This is in fact, 100 percent false.

“It was incredibly irresponsible of me to diagnose Barron Trump using a selection of misleading videos. Many of the videos I used showed Barron Trump behaving like any normal kid would at 3 a.m.

“I falsely correlated him trying to stay awake and occasionally doing quirky things, with him suffering from autism. This was incredibly foolish of me.”
