Facebook, Twitter penalize Trump for posts containing coronavirus “misinformation”

Aug 5, 2020

Facebook and Twitter have penalised US President Donald Trump and his campaign for posts in which he claimed children are “almost immune” to coronavirus.

Facebook deleted the post – a clip from an interview he gave to Fox News – saying it contained “harmful Covid misinformation”.

Twitter followed up by saying it had frozen a Trump campaign account until it removed a tweet of the same clip.
