Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) shared a New York Times story about a 9-month-old infant who almost died from a respiratory virus and how he was not covered by Medicaid. In sharing the story, Omar claimed the child died.

In a tweet on Thursday, Omar said his “death” was the “direct result of Trump’s cuts to Medicaid and CHIP. He is one of a million children to lose healthcare. Let that sink in.”

After she posted the tweet about his “death” just before 11:00 a.m., people were pointing out Elijah Johnson did not die.

Omar sent a short, corrective tweet a few hours later.

The Times reported Elijah’s mother tried to “re-enroll her older children earlier this year, was asked for proof of income and missed the 10-day window to provide it; that may be why Texas dropped Elijah from Medicaid even though he qualified because he was a baby.”

All of her children are now re-enrolled in Medicaid.
