After refusing to remove Donald Trump's tweets on MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, Twitter announced it was adding a fact check warnings to the president's posts for the first time. It came after the president continued discussing the "very sad and very suspicious" accusations about Mr Scarborough and his former staff member Lori Klausutis.

Joe Biden called Trump "an absolute fool" for mocking people wearing a mask as the president appeared to continue mocking mask wearers on Tuesday. Mr Trump denied mocking his presumptive presidential opponent's mask-wearing, while at the same time calling out a reporter for wearing a mask during a Rose Garden event.

During the diabetes announcement, Trump mused about whether he should take insulin. It's unclear if Trump has diabetes or not, but he did take hydroxychloroquine for two weeks even though he didn't have Covid-19even so maybe he will.
