This week Twitter “fact-checked” President Trump’s tweets. This is something they have never done to him before or ever to ex-President Obama when he was President.
Note the fact check box below his tweet in red:
Trump’s tweet was subsequently ‘fact checked’ by Twitter, with the company putting a warning label below it stating “Get the facts about mail-in ballots,” with a link to a page that states “Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election.’ However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.”
The page on Twitter notes that “These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others.”summit.news/2020/05/27/twitter-slaps-fact-check-censor-on-trump-tweet-about-rigged-election/
