Facebook has removed a video on the page of US President Donald Trump. The video in question, an interview with the president about the corona pandemic, has violated dangerous disinformation regulations, the US social media giant says.

In the Facebook post in question, Trump shared an interview with the conservative Fox News, in which he says that children are ‘as good as immune’ to the corona virus. According to Facebook, that interview contains “false claims” and “violates the policy on dangerous corona misinformation,” said a spokesperson.

The US President’s campaign team shared the same video on Twitter, but there was also a response. The account can no longer post new messages until the video is deleted, Twitter decided according to The Washington Post.

It is the first time that Facebook has deleted a message from Trump. The White House has not yet responded to that decision. Earlier, Twitter has posted several warnings to controversial tweets from the US President.

Trump wants to reopen schools

Trump’s claim is all about his intention to reopen schools in the US. Many Americans are concerned about this, as the coronavirus continues to cause many victims in several states, but the US president has made the restart of education an election promise.

Trump will run for a second term in the White House in November. He is up against Democrat Joe Biden, who is doing significantly better in the polls for now. Trump’s relatively lax approach to the coronavirus has not done well in recent months.

The United States is severely affected by the coronavirus, with over 4.8 million registered infections and at least 157,151 deceased patients.
