Donald Trump Jr, son of US president, Donald Trump, has been suspended from Twitter for posting “misleading and potentially harmful information” about coronavirus from Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Nigerian doctor based in the US.
The president’s son shared a video of Dr Stella Immanuel in which she called hydroxychloroquine a “cure” for coronavirus, even though the anti-malaria drug has not been found to be an effective Covid-19 treatment.
President Trump retweeted his son’s post, but that has since been removed from his Twitter timeline.
Twitter said in a tweet: “This account has not been permanently suspended. Per the screenshot, the tweet requires deletion because it violates our rules (sharing misinformation on Covid-19), and the account will have limited functionality for 12 hours.”
