WASHINGTON – Michael Caputo, the new Department of Health and Human Services spokesman, allegedly deleted xenophobic tweets before starting his new role last week.

Caputo, a Republican political operative who worked on President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, deleted nearly his entire Twitter feed before April 12, according to a report by CNN. He started his new position as assistant secretary for public affairs at HHS on April 15.

Many of the now-deleted tweets reviewed by CNN included xenophobic comments and were about coronavirus.
