  • Twitter briefly banned the Trump campaign's account from tweeting Wednesday after it violated the company's policies against COVID-19 misinformation, a spokesperson told Business Insider.
  • The campaign tweeted a video of Trump falsely claiming to Fox News that children are "almost immune" from the disease.
  • Trump also tweeted a link to the video, which has since been blocked, but the company did not take any action against the president's account.
  • Facebook took down a similar post by Trump earlier in the day for violating its own COVID-19 misinformation policies, a first for the company.
