Twitter has flagged yet another tweet from President Donald J. Trump. The 45th POTUS claimed he was immune to coronavirus now, despite no one ever confirming when the president’s last negative test result came in.
“A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!” he tweeted on Sunday morning.
Twitter hid the post within a couple of hours. A statement on the post reads, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”
Readers have to click “View” after reading the message to see Trump’s original message.
Though they don’t specify their problem, it’s likely that Trump claims he is “immune” to COVID-19, a claim he also made on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“It looks like I’m immune for, I don’t know, maybe a long time and maybe a short time, it could be a lifetime, nobody really knows, but I’m immune,” he said. “The word immunity means something, having really a protective glow.”
Scientists have not revealed a COVID-19 immunity yet. It also isn’t clear why Trump’s doctors claim he is not a risk for transmission when he hasn’t been declared free of the virus yet. Officials will not say when the President last tested negative for coronavirus.
Last week, Trump’s message claiming COVID-19 to be less deadly than the flu was flagged by both Facebook and Twitter.
Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis was announced early on Oct. 2. He spent last weekend at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center before he was released on Oct. 5. He resumed public events on Saturday, Oct. 10.
The CDC recommends isolating for 14 days after a coronavirus diagnosis.
