President Trump warned Tuesday that the election will be ‘rigged’ by Democrats using the pandemic to justify mail-in voting, and Twitter slapped a ‘fact check’ label on the post.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” Trump tweeted.

“This will be a Rigged Election. No way!” the president proclaimed.

Trump cited California’s governor Gavin Newsom signing an executive order to ensure all voters will receive mail ballots for the election in November.

“Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged and even illegally printed out and fraudulently signed,” Trump urged.

Lawsuits have been filed in an attempt to block the move by The Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, and the California Republican Party.

They contend that the move to an all mail in vote system is unconstitutional.

Trump declared that Democrats will use the opportunity to lobby people into giving them their votes.

“That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote,” he asserted.

Trump’s tweet was subsequently ‘fact checked’ by Twitter, with the company putting a warning label below it stating “Get the facts about mail-in ballots,” with a link to a page that states “Trump falsely claimed that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election.’ However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.”

The page on Twitter notes that “These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others.”

It also includes a host of tweets and posts by blue-checked leftists, some of whom make a living purely from attacking Trump relentlessly over anything and everything every day:

Aaron Rupar, for example, is an Associate editor at Vox who constantly tweets misleading clips and claims about Trump. The man is obsessed with bashing Trump every minute of every day, because ‘orange man bad’, yet here he is featured as part of Twitter’s ‘fact check’.

Jennifer Bendery is a senior politics reporter for HuffPost, another virulently leftist website. Bendery almost constantly slates Trump over everything he does and says, just look at her Twitter feed.

Abby Phillip is a white house correspondent for CNN, who previously had a run in with Trump over a question she asked about Robert Mueller at the height of the ‘Russian interference’ conspiracy.

Sam Levine is a former HuffPost correspondent who now works for The Guardian US. Leftist.

Daniel Dale is a CNN reporter, who previously worked for the Toronto Star, who literally said that ‘fact checking’ Trump has caused him to “rethink the relationship a journalist has with the truth.”

Dale’s entire existence is dedicated to countering everything Trump does, no matter what it is. If Trump farts, Dale is on hand to claim it wasn’t an accurate fart.

The list goes on.

It is blatantly obvious that Twitter is attempting to divert anyone catching Trump’s tweets toward a torrent of leftist opinion and agenda.

Twitter told CNBC that Trump’s tweets “contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.”

While Twitter has routinely slapped ‘fact checks’ on other posts, this is the first time  the company has used such a label on any Trump tweet.

Trump responded by declaring that Twitter is meddling in the election by “saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect.”

“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!,” he added in another tweet.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale wedged in, charging that Twitter is trying to block Trump from reaching voters.

“We always knew that Silicon Valley would pull out all the stops to obstruct and interfere with President Trump getting his message through to voters,” Parscale urged.

“Partnering with the biased fake news media ‘fact checkers’ is only a smoke screen Twitter is using to try to lend their obvious political tactics some false credibility,” Parscale said, adding “There are many reasons the Trump campaign pulled all our advertising from Twitter months ago, and their clear political bias is one of them.”

Donald Trump Jr. also responded to the move by Twitter:

The Twitter ‘fact check’ on Trump’s posts comes just days after MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski lobbied the company to take action against Trump, after he doubled down on tweets concerning her husband and co-host, ‘psycho’ Joe Scarborough:

The move by Twitter also comes amid reports that the company’s AI tools are far from accurate when it comes to labelling posts as ‘misleading’.
