WASHINGTON – The Washington Post said Wednesday that Twitter temporarily banned the Trump campaign Twitter account for posting false COVID-19 information.
The account, TeamTrump, was temporarily banned from tweeting until the post — a video of a Fox News interview in which the president said children are “almost immune” from the coronavirus — was removed, according to WaPo.
The tweet was hidden behind a warning until the Trump Campaign account removed it.
Facebook made a similar move Wednesday, removing a post with the same video. The platform said it violated its policy against spreading misinformation about the coronavirus, according to the Associated Press.
