President Donald Trump of the United States has defended Nigerian-trained doctor Stella Immanuel after the latter claimed that there is a cure for the deadly coronavirus.
The president defended Doctor Immanuel when answering questions from CNN's Kaitlan Collins, CNN reports.
Briefly.co.za recalls that Doctor Immanuel left the social media shaken with the claim that hydroxychloroquine cures COVID-19.
She prides herself on social media as a "physician, author, speaker, entrepreneur, deliverance minister, God's battle axe and weapon of war" and of the Rehoboth Medical Center, Houston, TX.
Collins told President Trump: "Mr. President, the woman that you said is a great doctor in that video that you retweeted last night said masks don't work and there is a cure for Covid-19, both of which health experts say is not true. She's also made videos saying that doctors make medicine using DNA from aliens, and that they're trying to create a vaccine to make you immune from becoming religious."
The president responded: "I don't know which country she comes from, but she said that she's had tremendous success with hundreds of different patients.
"And I thought her voice was an important voice, but I know nothing about her."

In other news, a lady with the Twitter handle @loistruly has taken to the microblogging site to narrate how she was saved from depression by a street urchin popularly called agbero.
The lady, who said she quit her job and was homeless in 2019, said she was struggling to not fall into depression.
According to her, she went to Victoria Island in Lagos to see a movie so as not to drown in her sadness. She said the play lifted her spirit a bit but she was still sad.
She tweeted: "I was still in a dark place, but I decided I was done being sad. I started playing Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the feeling and walking down from Terra Kulture to Eko hotel roundabout because my money would finish if I didn't walk.
"By the time I got to the major road, the music hit and I started singing and walking to the beat. I sing and dance on the road (life is too short not to)."
