President Biden clarified a comment he made to reporters on Friday, that Facebook is “killing people” with misinformation that keeps people from getting COVID-19 vaccinations.

Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. It’s killing people. It’s bad information,” said Biden on Monday. “My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally that somehow I am saying that Facebook is killing people, that they would do something about the misinformation.”
