Twitter restricted Donald Trump Jr.’s ability to tweet after he posted a video featuring a doctor making false claims about coronavirus cures and stating that people “don’t need masks” to prevent the virus from spreading, a Twitter spokesperson said Tuesday.

Some of the account’s functionality, including the ability to tweet, will be limited for 12 hours, the spokesperson said.

They’re censoring my account. They’re censoring others,” Donald Trump Jr. said in an interview with Fox News

This never happens to someone saying something that benefits the left. It only hurts conservatives,” he said, adding that he had posted the video because it seemed “very contrary to the narrative that they’ve been force-feeding us.”

Fauci, who directs the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Tuesday he has “not been misleading the American public under any circumstances.”

In the misleading video, doctors touted hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19 and discounted the need for face masks against the pandemic. The right-wing news site Breitbart News, which posted the video, also showed a screenshot of its 17 million video views on Facebook before it was taken down.

“It took us several hours to enforce against the video and we’re doing a review to understand why this took longer than it should have,” said a Facebook spokesman.”

Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube removed the video after it started to go viral.

President Donald Trump also retweeted multiple versions of the video on Twitter, but he did not upload a version of the video to the site. His son did, which is why Twitter only took action against Trump Jr.’s account, a company spokesperson said.

Donald John Trump is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in Queens, a borough of New York City.

Twitter informed in a statement that the account had ‘not been permanently suspended’, and has asked the President’s son to delete the tweet with the video. The company has already removed it from public view, Surabian added.
