President Donald Trump was ridiculed for being slapped with Twitter restrictions on Wednesday.

The president’s campaign tweeted out his video appearing on “Fox & Friends” in which he claims that children can’t get the coronavirus, or if they do, it isn’t that bad. Not only is the comment a lie, but it’s also a dangerous one that is so bad that Facebook removed Trump’s video and Twitter demanded the campaign delete the video or it would remain in “Twitter jail,” suspended from tweeting.

Trump reposted the video to his personal account, and the video appears to still be online. Social media sites have come under fire from users as Trump is allowed to lie about key facts of the virus, endangering lives.

It was a point of news that many flocked to Twitter to mock the president and his campaign, which was, until recently, being run by his social media staffer.

Trump threatens to block stricter COVID vaccine standards — declaring ‘tremendous trust’ in big Pharma

Published

With the Food and Drug Administration reportedly planning to propose stricter guidelines for emergency approval of a coronavirus vaccine, President Donald Trump late Wednesday threatened to block the agency's push for tougher standards because he trusts for-profit pharmaceutical corporations to conduct adequate safety testing.

"Trump's White House must not block or water down this guidance and must allow scientists and public health officials, not Trump's political interests, to guide this vaccine approval process."—Eli Zupnick, Accountable Pharma"I have tremendous trust in these massive companies that are so brilliantly organized in terms of what they've been doing with the tests. I don't know that a government as big as we are could do tests like this," Trump said during a press briefing, minimizing the central role the federal government has played in coordinating and providing much of the funding for vaccine trials.

CNN host Alisyn Camerota expressed shock on Thursday when a supporter of President Donald Trump told her he didn't want to take any vaccines, regardless of whether the president gave him their seal of approval.

During a voter panel discussion about the president's response to the novel coronavirus, Camerota asked a group of three Biden voters and three Trump voters if they would be comfortable taking a vaccine that was released this year -- and five of them said that they would not.

While some of the panelists said they were simply worried that the vaccine was being rushed out the door to help with the president's election, Florida Trump supporter Sean Roberts said he didn't take any vaccines.
