For the first time, Facebook has removed one of President Trump's posts citing its coronavirus misinformation policy.
So what post from the President was taken down? Trump's post was a video from a Wednesday interview on Fox News. The video showed Trump talking about the coronavirus and how it affects children. In the video, Trump says that children should be able to return to schools for in-person education because they are "almost immune" to the virus.
Here's what Trump said, "I don't know how you feel about it, but they've got much stronger immune systems than we do somehow for this than we do, and they don't have a problem. They just don't have a problem." A Facebook spokesperson got into contact with NBC News and gave a reason for the removal of the President's post, saying, "This view includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation".
At the time of writing, this News Week said that the video could be viewed on the Trump campaign's feed over on Twitter, but upon clicking the link, it seems it has been removed from there as well. If you are interested in any more news on this subject, check out this link here.
