Trump Rips CNN for Asking About Tweet on Controversial Doctor

This virus has a cure - It is called hydroxychloroquine.

Moreover, when Trump was questioned regarding his tweet supporting Dr Stella Immanuel's claims on hydroxychloroquine as a cure for Covid-19, he said, "I thought her voice was an important voice, but I know nothing about her".

The president's comments come after Twitter temporarily suspended his son Donald Trump Jr.'s account, after he posted a video on Facebook and Twitter which promoted the drug.

NIAID director Anthony Fauci told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday that all of the randomized, controlled clinical trials for hydroxychloroquine have "consistently" shown that the anti-malarial drug is "not effective" for the treatment of COVID-19. He also defended his retweets, alleging he wasn't making any claims.

Ms Immanuel's claim is also at odds with the recommendation by Nigeria's disease control agency, NCDC, which has said hydroxychloroquine is administered to COVID-19 patients on case-by-case basis and its potency varies from person to person. "You don't need masks, there is a cure".

It also does not correspond with the stance if the United States' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which said that hydroxychloroquine is "unlikely to produce an antiviral effect".

Referring to Immanuel, Biden suggested that Trump "stop talking about this insane woman he talked about last night, who's an absolute disgrace".

But Huawei still took the title thanks to robust sales in its home market, where demand has recovered faster than elsewhere. The Chinese tech company shipped 55.8 million devices during April, May and June, overtaking Samsung , its closest rival.

But Twitter said it deleted the various versions of the video shared late Monday night by Mr Trump and Breitbart News, having pulled thousands of views and shares.

"It is beyond the pale for Twitter to silence someone for sharing the views of medical professionals who happen to dissent with their anti-hydroxychloroquine narrative", Mr Surabian said.

Those clips have since been removed from social media and, according to The Washington Post, Trump's Twitter was penalized due to the posting of "misinformation", including the video with Dr. Stella Immanuel.

Immanuel believes, among other things, that there is alien DNA in medicine and gynecological problems are caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons.

Currently, her page has a message that says the tweet was removed for violating Twitter's rules.
