Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone confirmed the corporate removed the post for breaking its guidelines on Covid-19 misinformation.

President Trump has, by his own admission, played down the risk of Covid-19. Now, while battling his own bout of the illness, he has continued to dishonestly downplay the severity of the virus.

His post on Tuesday falsely equated Covid-19 to the seasonal flu.

The President also posted the identical message on Twitter. That post continues to be live, but Twitter has appended a message to the Tweet stating it violated the corporate’s rule on spreading deceptive information associated to Covid-19.

In August, Facebook and Twitter removed a post by Trump for holding false claims about Covid-19. The post contained a video of President throughout a Fox News interview during which he falsely claimed that children are “almost immune” to the virus.
Tuesday afternoon, Trump tweeted, “REPEAL SECTION 230!!!” He said no more than that, leaving exactly what he was referring to out of the tweet, but it was probably a response to the actions taken by Facebook and Twitter. Section 230 is shorthand for the half of US legislation that offers tech corporations immunity for nearly all of their choices concerning content material moderation.
