Donald Trump: 'Twitter Is Now Interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election'by Charlie Spiering
President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused Twitter of interfering in the 2020 presidential election after branding one of his tweets warning about election fraud “false.”
“Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election,” Trump wrote on Twitter after the company unveiled their new fact check feature on a tweet from earlier in the morning.
Twitter included a link to his tweet urging voters to “get the facts” about mail-in voting after President Trump predicted widespread voter fraud.
“They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post,” Trump wrote.
The president hinted that Twitter would face consequences for their actions.
“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!” he wrote.
The president has frequently warned tech companies for censoring conservatives on social media and unfairly treating Republicans, but he has also tried to work with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
In April 2019, Trump met with Dorsey to discuss Twitter, thanking him for “keeping an open dialogue” about the platform.
