Facebook removes Trump post falsely saying flu is more lethal than Covid
Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone confirmed the company removed the post for breaking its rules on Covid-19 misinformation.
President Trump has, by his own admission, played down the threat of Covid-19. Now, while battling his own bout of the disease, 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 same message on Twitter. That post is still live. Twitter declined to comment.
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.
