Twitter has locked the Trump campaign’s account over a clip containing misinformation about the novel coronavirus, saying the account will be able to resume tweeting only if it deletes the tweet in question.
The clip comes from a “Fox & Friends” interview and features the president claiming children are “almost immune” from the virus. The same excerpt was removed from Facebook earlier Wednesday.
The tweet “is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation,” Twitter spokesperson Liz Kelley told the Washington Post. “The account owner will be required to remove the tweet before they can tweet again.”
The campaign has the option to appeal the decision.
