The move, however, drew a furious response from Trump, who said, "Twitter is completely stifling free speech and I as President will not allow that to happen."

Twitter had targeted two tweets, Trump had posted on Tuesday, in which he contended without evidence that mail-in voting would lead to fraud and a rigged election. Trump falsely claimed that the main-in ballots would lead to rigged election, the notice said.

Fact-checkers say that there is no evidence to suggest that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.
