Twitter flags President Trump’s COVID-19 immunity tweet
UPDATED 10:30 AM PT – Monday, October 12, 2020
Twitter attempted to censor the President, yet again, on Sunday by flagging a tweet in which President Trump claimed he was immune to the coronavirus. In a disclaimer, Twitter alleged the post violated its rules about misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.
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!!!

This comes as scientific evidence is unclear on how long people who have recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies and are protected from a second infection.
President Trump also said he received a “total and complete sign off from White House doctors” and that he would not be a transmission risk to others. This frees him to return to holding campaign rallies during the final weeks of the presidential race, which is something he’s been eager to get back to after more than a week-long absence from the campaign trail.
The President’s comments came a day after his physician said the President had taken a test showing he was no longer infectious. On Sunday, President Trump also repeated his past calls for states to reopen their economies.
