Twitter labels Trump's tweet about the Supreme Court's ruling on Pennsylvania mail-in ballots as misleading and blocks users from sharing and liking

Twitter on the eve of Election Day, labeled yet another tweet from President Donald Trump for violating its policies against spreading election-related misinformation and prevented users from sharing or liking the tweet.

Trump tweeted Monday evening — without evidence — that a recent decision by the US Supreme Court to allow Pennsylvania to count mail-in ballots received up to three days after Election Day would lead to widespread election fraud and violence.

The state's Supreme Court had extended the deadline in response to the coronavirus pandemic and postal delays, and the US Supreme Court did not approve a request from Republican state officials to block the extension. The ruling requires county election officials to count ballots that arrive by November 6, as long as there's no evidence they were mailed after the polls closed on November 3, even if their postmarks were illegible or missing.


"The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is a VERY dangerous one," Trump tweeted, without evidence. "It will allow rampant and unchecked cheating and will undermine our entire systems of laws. It will also induce violence in the streets. Something must be done!"
