Twitter + Facebook pull Trump’s video of false claims that children are “almost immune” to COVID-19

Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday removed a post by President Donald Trump because it included a video of him on Fox News, in which he said children are ‘almost immune’ from the Coronavirus, as the social media giants said that kind of characterization ran afoul of rules related to the virus outbreak.

“This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation,” a Facebook spokesman told news organizations, which was the first to act.
