The same video had also been shared by Donald Trump, while his account remains active, the tweet was replaced with a message stating that the video was "no longer available."

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed the suspension of the account, saying: "The Tweet is in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. The account will be locked until the account owner removes the Tweet."
