Facebook on Tuesday removed a post from President Trump in which he falsely claimed that COVID-19 is less deadly than the seasonal flu.
The post was removed fro breaking its rules agains COVID19 misinformation.
His post on Tuesday falsely equated COVID-19 to the seasonal flu.
Trump wrote on Facebook and Twitter that America had “learned to live with” the upcoming flu season, “just like we are learning to live with” COVID-19 — which, Trump incorrectly asserted, is “in most populations far less lethal!!!..”
He was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week and spent the weekend at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center before being discharged.
Twitter did not remove a tweet with the same message, but it added a warning label and restricted interactions with the post.
In August, Facebook and Twitter removed a post by Trump for containing false claims about COVID-19. The post contained a video of President during a Fox News interview in which he falsely claimed that children are “almost immune” to the virus
