Facebook removes message from Trump for falsely claiming that children are ‘almost immune’ to COVID-19

For the first time, Facebook removed a message from Donald Trump’s personal page on Wednesday for making false claims about the coronavirus.

Trump had uploaded a video of an interview he gave to Fox News earlier Wednesday in which he falsely stated that children are ‘almost immune’ to COVID-19.

“They have a much stronger immune system than [adults]Trump said in the video, which also tweeted his official presidential campaign account.

In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said the president’s post has been removed for violating the social media platform’s policy around harmful COVID misinformation. ‘

The move was followed shortly afterwards by Twitter, which announced they had ordered Trump’s campaign account, @TeamTrump, to delete a “ misleading ” post with the same video, banning tweeting again until it did so.

A link to Trump’s Facebook post is now being redirected to a page that says “This content is currently unavailable.”

@TeamTrump’s tweet violates the Twitter rules about misinformation about COVID-19. The account owner must remove the Tweet before he can tweet again, “a company spokesperson said in a statement.

The Trump campaign account was active again late Wednesday after the post was removed. Trump’s personal account also retweeted the video, but it was removed after the original post was removed.

In the video in question, Trump was heard in a telephone interview with Fox News, in which he argued that schools across the country should be reopened.

“When you look at children, children are almost – and I would almost certainly say – but almost immune to this disease,” said Trump.

“So little, they’ve gotten stronger, hard to believe, I don’t know what you think about it, but they have a much stronger immune system than we somehow do before.

“And they don’t have a problem, they just don’t have a problem,” he added.

While less vulnerable, children can contract the disease and transmit it to others, and some have even died from it. Researchers believe that infection rates in children are often underreported because they are often asymptomatic and largely excluded from clinical studies.

In response to the removal, the Trump campaign has accused Facebook of exhibiting a “blatant bias.”

“The President stated that children are less susceptible to the coronavirus,” said Trumpney Deputy National Press Secretary of Trump in an email statement.

Another day, another display of Silicon Valley’s blatant bias against this president, where rules are enforced in one direction only. Social media companies are not arbitrators of the truth. ‘

A Trump campaign spokesperson has also made similar allegations of bias against Twitter.

The Twitter employee who announced why the account was temporarily suspended is also former Kamala Harris press secretary. Silicon Valley is hopelessly biased against the president, “the spokesman said, according to Breaking911.

The action comes as the first time Facebook has deleted a Trump post for misinformation about COVID-19, marking a rare case where the company was willing to censor the president.

Facebook has previously fact-checked labels on Trump’s misleading messages on a variety of topics, including voting by mail.

In June, the social media giant removed a series of ads from Trump campaigns with a symbol used by Nazis to classify political prisoners during World War II.

Facebook has been vigorously scrutinized on both sides of the partisan divide because of the handling of Trump’s post.

The refusal of the Mark Zuckerberg-owned company to take action on posts where the President appeared to call for violence against Black Lives Matter protesters sparked outrage among Democrats, helping to inspire the #StopHateForProfit boycott campaign, involving more than a thousand companies stopped advertising on the site.

Amid the consequences, Zuckerberg said in late June that Facebook will now remove posts that incite violence or attempt to repress votes – even from political leaders – and that the company will put labels on posts that violate hateful language or other policies.

Twitter has been much more powerful in their efforts to respond to what they considered to be policy violations of politicians, especially Trump.

Twitter has posted several warning labels on the President’s tweets in recent months, marking his posts as misleading, including comments he made about “fraudulent” mail-in ballots.

The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was also ordered last month to delete a misleading tweet from Twitter after making misleading claims about hydroxychloroquine. He was later suspended from the platform for 12 hours.

Trump supporters have accused Twitter, Facebook and YouTube of harboring a liberal bias and falsely censoring conservatives.

Several Republican lawmakers filed similar complaints to Zuckerberg last month during a high-profile technical antitrust hearing in Congress.
