Facebook has taken down a post from Donald Trump’s personal page on Wednesday for making false claims about the coronavirus - the first time it has removed one of his posts for violating its content rules.

Trump had uploaded a video of an interview he gave to Fox News earlier Wednesday, in which he falsely stated that children are ‘almost immune' to COVID-19.

‘They have much stronger immune system than [adults],’ Trump said in the video, which the official account for his presidential campaign also tweeted.

I Call True: Once again Trump has been banned for spreading fake news. But then what would we expect, this fake news he spreads has almost been as much of a pandemic as covid 19!

Although not yet medically proven, the stats do speak for themselves.

Good to see the tech companies showing their teeth a bit against the constant FAKENEWS that Trump puts out there

I thought that the cases of kids catching it were dramatically lower than adults?
