The US President Donald Trump has stirred controversy again after he retweeted a viral video and voiced support for a doctor who reportedly praised hydroxychloroquine as a miracle coronavirus cure and claimed alien DNA was used in medical treatments.

The clip, which now has been removed from the microblogging website, featured a group of people who claimed to be “America’s Frontline Doctors” and stated that neither masks nor lockdowns were required to fight the ongoing pandemic.

According to the Washington Post, the video was live-streamed on media outlet Breitbart and was viewed over 14 million times. The clip received more attention after it was re-shared by Donald Trump Jr. and by President Trump.

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.” He later cut short the address and stormed out.
