US election 2020: Trump alleges attempt to steal votes, Twitter takes action

The tweet on votes theft by United States President Donald Trump has been restricted.

“We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!” he tweeted.

Twitter has prevented users from commenting, liking or retweeting.

“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process”, a message read.

The policy warns against usage of the platform to interfere in elections or other civic processes.

“We placed a warning on a Tweet from @realDonaldTrump for making a potentially misleading claim about an election. This action is in line with our Civic Integrity Policy,” Twitter said.
