Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Gupta has posted a hilarious tweet poking fun at US President Donald Trump's comment about using disinfectants to combat COVID-19


News about US President Donald Trump's new-fangled suggestion to eradicate the COVID-19 virus has stumped the entire world as a result of which, many have responded to him through their social media accounts.
