The ITV host took to Twitter after the outspoken pair clashed on Good Morning Britain today as the host challenged Mr Farage about the US President’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. Mr Morgan was referring to President Trump’s suggestion in April where he questioned whether research should take place into injecting patients with “disinfectant” and whether placing them beneath UV lighting may help treat coronavirus, an idea which was dismissed by a doctor at the briefing.

The tweet has been liked, retweeted and commented on more than 7,000 times.
