A Berlin official who accused the Trump administration of “modern hacking” after the disappearance of 200,000 masks for Germany backed down and admitted that the supplies had been ordered from a local company – which caused ” fake news corrected ” Tweeter from President Trump.

Andreas Geisel, Minister of the Interior of the Berlin regional government, said in a statement on Friday that the shipment of masks from an American manufacturer had only reached Bangkok before being “confiscated”, reported German media at the time.

He described it as “an act of modern piracy”

But Geisel said on Saturday that the order had been placed with a German company and that it was examining supply chain issues, the Washington Post reported on Sunday.

Trump retweeted his acting director of national security, Richard Grennel, who had a connection to the Washington Post report, on Sunday, saying, “Now the WashPost has made a difference.”

“Corrected false news!” Trump wrote.
