President Donald J. Trump's advisor, Richard Grenell, took to Twitter account Friday to share his dissatisfaction with the media reporting on Donald Trump, Jr.'s contraction of COVID-19.

Grenell, the former acting Director of National Intelligence, has been working with Rudy Giuliani on Trump’s post-election legal efforts.

"Reporters need to stop announcing protected health information. This is a violation of HIPAA rules," Grenell tweeted before receiving public correction.

Here's how the announcement began:

NBC News correspondent Josh Lederman retweeted with his own reply, stating, "Don Jr’s spokesman disclosed it in a statement, so that’s who you are accusing of violating HIPAA." Lederman added, "Also, if it violates his privacy, why did you retweet it to your ~700k followers?"
