Twitter labels Trump video tweet as manipulated media

The video then cuts to the original clip of the children hugging, and then cuts to the message “America is not the problem. Fake news is.”

The video received at least 3.8 million views, and more than 75,000 retweets.

“This tweet has been labelled per our synthetic and manipulated media policy to give people more context,” Twitter spokeswoman Katie Rosborough said.

This is only the third time that the company has announced that it would take action against one of the president’s tweets. Twitter has previously appended labels to a pair of Trump’s tweets that made misleading claims about mail-in ballots, as well as another post that said “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” for violating its terms on violence.
