Donald Trump Jr. returned from having his Twitter account temporarily ‘limited’ and slammed social media companies for “trying to make you think the way that they do.”
The President’s son shared a video featuring a group of ‘frontline doctors’ discussing their opinions of the medical community’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
One woman in the video identified as Dr. Stella Immanuel made the controversial claim that “this virus has a cure, it’s called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax.”
Trump had his account “limited” for 12 hours for the crime of sharing the video and allegedly “violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”
What He Tweeted
In an Instagram post, Trump revealed that he simply presented the video and made a mundane comment asking his followers to decide what they thought of the information.

The offending tweet, he states, described the video as a “must-watch” and that “it seems very different than the narrative we’re being told.”
“It’s sort of interesting that they would censor me for literally just saying, ‘Here are a bunch of doctors just saying something,'” he pondered.
In one of his first comments back on Twitter after having his account limited, Trump Jr. accused social media companies of trying to force the American people to think a certain way.
And he says the government is helping to make it happen through inaction.
This times 1000! Big tech is trying to make you think the way that they do and the government is helping them do it. Enough is enough. https://t.co/r19vdyuaaj
