'Fact-checked', Trump threatens to 'close down social media'

May 28, 2020 10:26 IST

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday threatened to close down social media platforms after Twitter fact-checked two of his tweets and accused him of making false claims. "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen," Trump tweeted. Twitter targeted two tweets the president posted on Tuesday in which he contended without evidence that mail-in voting would lead to fraud and a "rigged election."
