Twitter, Facebook Delete Viral Video Promoted By Trump On COVID-19 And Hydroxychloroquine

Two giants of social media, Facebook and Twitter, have yanked a video of a press conference in Washington, D.C., that was reposted by President Trump.

The viral video, viewed more than 14 million times on Facebook alone, features doctors and medical personnel from a group America’s Frontline Doctors, who share their opinions on coronavirus and the response to the pandemic.

Andy Stone, a spokesman for Facebook, said the video was removed “for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19.”

A spokesperson for Twitter told Business Insider, “Tweets with the video are in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We are taking action in line with our policy.”
