Twitter added a fact-checking warning label to a tweet by President Donald Trump on Tuesday, and this is the first time the social media platform has used such a warning for Trump's tweets.

In two tweets, Trump alleged that mail-in ballots would be "substantially fraudulent" and result in a "Rigged Election.". Now both of the tweets have a label stating, "Get the facts about mail-in ballots." and a link leading to a page saying the president's tweets are not true.
