U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused the social networking site Twitter of “interfering” in the November presidential election, after the social network first labeled two of its tweets as misleading.

“Twitter now interferes with the presidential elections of 2020,” the Republican leader tweeted.

On Tuesday, Twitter linked for the first time a message from U.S. President Donald Trump, with verified information that contradicts what he had published, a procedure that is common on the social network but which until now had been reluctant to apply to the president.

The Twitter alert came after Trump shared a message claiming that absentee voting in the November U.S. presidential election would inevitably have fraudulent consequences and lead to a rigged election.

The president was reacting to the decision by California Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, to send mail ballots to all registered voters in the state as an exceptional measure in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
