Twitter flagged one of President Donald Trump’s tweets Sunday as ‘misleading’ after he claimed he was immune to the coronavirus.

The social media site claimed that Trump violated its company’s rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to the virus and pandemic.

‘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!!!’ Trump said in a tweet, which has now been flagged by Twitter with a disclaimer.

The disclaimer attached to 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.’

It also prompts users to ‘learn more’ in a link that directs to a page on ‘helping people find reliable information’ about COVID-19.

Trump made the claim in a tweet after repeatedly telling Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo during a Sunday morning interview that he was ‘cured’ and now ‘immune’ from coronavirus just over a week after his initial diagnosis.

‘Once you recover, you’re immune,’ the president said during the 30-minute phone interview on ‘Sunday Morning Futures.’

He touted: ‘Now you have a president that’s immune.’
