A clip of President Trump has been censored by Twitter and Facebook, according to Breitbart News.
The video in question is reportedly an interview between President Trump and Fox & Friends.
According to Fox News, the video has been flagged because of alleged coronavirus “misinformation.”
Facebook said that it removed the video because President Trump claimed that children have heightened immunity to coronavirus.
“This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from Covid-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful Covid misinformation,” said Facebook spokesman Andy Stone in a statement attempting to justify the takedown.

Twitter quickly followed Facebook’s lead.
In a statement, Courtney Parella slammed Facebook for its censorship of the President.
“Social media companies are not the arbiters of truth, said Parella. According to Parella, Trump was “stating a fact that children are less susceptible to the coronavirus.”
More from Breitbart News:
Using the Chinese virus as a justification, social media platforms have over the past few months taken unprecedented steps to censor the President, his supporters, and conservative media.
Last week, Facebook censored a viral video posted by Breitbart News of an organization of medical professionals, America’s Frontline Doctors, holding a press conference on coronavirus alongside Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC).
Other tech giants once again followed Facebook’s lead, including Twitter, which deleted Breitbart News’ post and locked it out of its account for over four days.
