Facebook removes Trump's post saying COVID-19 is less deadly than flu

Facebook removed a post from President Donald Trump in which he claimed that the coronavirus is less deadly than the seasonal flu.

Facebook confirmed to CNN that the post was removed for breaking its rules against COVID-19 misinformation.

Twitter did not remove a tweet with the same message, but it added a warning label and restricted interactions with the post.

Earlier today, 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.
