For the second time in a week, Twitter has issued a warning to a message from US President Donald Trump, which the administrators of the microblogging platform say is “potentially misleading.”
This is a tweet in which Trump expresses his dissatisfaction with a recent Supreme Court decision on the election rules in Pennsylvania.
Trump and his Republican party members suffered a defeat at the Supreme Court last week when it refused to expedite a decision on a case surrounding the extra time that applies to the post-election in Pennsylvania for postal votes.
In the crucial swing state, these can still be counted up to three days after elections. The Republicans want that extra time for vote counting off the table and are currently litigating in the Supreme Court.
“The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is perilous,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It will allow rampant and unhindered cheating and undermine our entire legal system.” According to Trump, the ruling by the nation’s highest judicial body also encourages “street violence.” “Something has to be done!” He concluded.
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is being questioned,” said Twitter in the announcement accompanying Trump’s post. Just like last Tuesday, a link was added that leads to a website that explains that voting by mail is legal and safe.
