President Trump seems to be facing trouble because of his tweet in which he alleged ‘vote theft’.
Trump had tweeted, “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!”

Twitter took action against the tweet quickly. It placed it behind a warning and added a misinformation label.
It explained its actions in a tweet, mentioning that the president’s message contained a “potentially misleading claim about an election.”
