US President Donald Trump ’s son will not be able to tweet for 12 hours after posting a video of doctors claiming the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is a cure for coronavirus. A screenshot posted by Donald Trump Jr ’s spokesman Andrew Serbian showed some features on his account had been temporarily limited for “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information” about coronavirus.
