Twitter posted another warning on Monday evening (local time) with a message from US President Donald Trump.
The tweet, in which Trump reiterates his baseless position that postal voting would encourage electoral fraud, has been “questioned” by Twitter and “may be misleading,” the warning reads.
“Major problems and irregularities with letter votes all over the US. Should be final total by November 3,” Trump posted on Twitter.
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is being questioned and may be misleading as to how you can participate in elections or other civil lawsuits,” the social media company posted with the message. Also included was a link leading to a website explaining that postal voting is legal and safe.
More Americans than ever are expected to vote by letter in the upcoming presidential election because of the corona epidemic. Despite what experts say, President Donald Trump and his Republican party members claim that postal voting encourages electoral fraud.
According to the Democrats, this is an excuse for the Republicans to exclude Democratic voters and thus bend the elections to their will. Postal voting has thus become one of the big points of contention in the run-up to the US presidential election on November 3.
It is far from the first time that Twitter has intervened in a message from President Trump, who is known as a fanatic Twitterer. In one of the most recent cases, Twitter warned that Trump was making “misleading health claims” after claiming in a post that he was immune to the coronavirus after being successfully treated for it.
