WATCH: 'She's got a son' - Donald Trump refers to his child with First Lady Melania Trump

"She's got a son."

US President Donald Trump seemed to forget that Barron Trump is just as much his child as he is Melania's during a press conference last night.

Trump was discussing plans to ban flavoured eletronic cigarettes when the slip occurred, before appearing to correct himself.

Referring to Mrs Trump, who was sitting right beside him, he said: "That's how the First Lady got involved. She's got a son- together- that is a beautiful young man and she feels very, very strongly about it.

"She's seen it. We're both reading it. A lot of people are reading it. But people are dying with vaping."
