Twitter fact-checks Trump tweet. Adds warning labels about deceptive content.

  • Twitter, on Tuesday began fact-checking Donald Trump’s posts, applying warning labels to two of his tweets that made misleading claims about mail-in voting.
  • Twitter’s move marked the first time that the social media giant has fact-checked the president.
  • “Get the facts about mail-in ballots,” the tags read below two of Trump’s tweets. When clicked, the links lead users to a page that in part reads: “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.”
