Facebook deleted post where Trump claimed Covid-19 was "less lethal" than the flu, while Twitter hid it behind a warning about "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information". Covid-19 thought to be up to 10 times more lethal than most flu strains.

Trump's reaction: "REPEAL SECTION 230!!!" His proposal has cross-party support: Republicans claim bias against/censorship of conservative views, Democrats worried about misinformation.
