WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) – For the first time, Twitter has flagged some of President Donald Trump’s tweets with a fact-check warning.
Trump campaign statement on new Twitter policy
“We always knew that Silicon Valley would pull out all the stops to obstruct and interfere with President Trump getting his message through to voters. Partnering with the biased fake news media ‘fact checkers’ is only a smoke screen Twitter is using to try to lend their obvious political tactics some false credibility. There are many reasons the Trump campaign pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and their clear political bias is one of them.“
– Brad Parscale, Trump 2020 campaign manager
