"There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent", Trump wrote in a tweet that was flagged as misleading. Trump's executive order will require the FCC to determine whether a social media company is moderating content using deceptive policies and if the company is not following its own terms of service.
President Donald Trump cruised on caps lock in a tweet on Thursday evening to fuel his unfounded allegations that "MAIL-IN VOTING WILL LEAD TO MASSIVE FRAUD AND ABUSE". This will be a Rigged Election.
Only registered voters will receive mail-in ballots. Trump himself evens votes by mail in Florida. Last week, Trump threatened to withhold federal funding from MI because the state's secretary of state sent absentee ballot applications to all registered voters. "Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that's me".
MI launched a similar initiative to Wisconsin in mid-May, infuriating President Donald Trump, who falsely claims that voting by mail leads to election fraud. On Wednesday, White House advisor Kellyanne Conway took to Fox News and called on Trump supporters to protest Twitter's Head of Site Integrity for past tweets criticizing the president and his administration. At the very least that's what the New York Post thinks, stating it was done after they challenged Twitter regarding its evident dual criteria in targeting Trump and also not the Chinese authorities.
Trump reiterated his accusations of political bias by such technology platforms, tweeting: "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices".
President Trump is on the warpath this morning. A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment on Trump's Thursday tweet.
The tweet in question was Trump calling out mail-in ballots for upcoming elections rather then the more dramatic and baseless conspiracy theory of Lori Klausutis's death.
Sir Nick Clegg, a prominent former United Kingdom politician turned Facebook's vice-president of communications, said the company doesn't believe "a private tech company like ours should be in the business of vetting what politicians say about each other", the Telegraph reports. It's no secret that Roth and other social media enforcers have a left-leaning bent.
