Facebook removes Trump post over coronavirus misinformation rules; Twitter also clamps down


Facebook and Twitter are both taking action after a video shared by President Trump they say contains misinformation about the coronavirus. In the removed video, the president told Fox & Friends that schools should remain open. “If you look at children, children are almost — and I would almost say definitely — but almost immune from this disease.”He added that children have "much stronger immune systems" and "just don't have a problem." A Twitter spokesperson told Fox News the tweet is "in violation of the Twitter rules on COVID-19 misinformation" and that the Trump campaign will "be required to remove the Tweet before they can Tweet again." Trump campaign spokesperson Courtney Parella told Fox News that President Trump was "stating a fact that children are less susceptible to the coronavirus."
