Meet the Saudi man who Trump’s COVID-19 Twitter blunder accidently made famous

  • Donald Trump was meant to tag the Food and Drug Association

RIYADH: It’s not every day that you’re mentioned by the most powerful man in the world, but MLK, better known as @FdA found himself the star of the show when he was tagged on twitter by the leader of the free world President Donald Trump.

A mix-up in Twitter handles found him mentioned on the platform by @realDONALDTRUMP, when President Trump retweeted an article about a research institute that developed technology which “can clean up to 80,000 pieces of PPE (personal protective equipment) for use.” The author of the article says in her tweet that it is a “huge breakthrough in the fight against the #coronavirus.”

The comment on the retweet read: Highly recommended by Governor @MikeDeWine of Ohio. @FDA must move quickly!

Considered an honest mistake, While the actual food and drug administration handle is @US_FDA.

MLK aka @FdA has his location set to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. On twitter, MLK does not follow anyone nor does he have any tweets posted. However, his follower numbers are another story with a cool 16.6 thousand.
