However, shortly after Trumps release, the Twitter official labeled Trumps tweets as manipulated media, that is, twitter determined that Trumps forwarding of the video was a fabrication. Later on the 18th, twitter banned the video again. In May, Trumps tweets about mailing votes were also labeled fact checking by Twitter, the report said.
According to the previous report, Facebook, another major social media company in the United States, also deleted a campaign ad of Trumps campaign team on the same day. The original ad had a red triangle down. Facebook said the sign was removed because it was similar to the one worn by Nazi political prisoners and violated the Prohibition of organized hate activities. The Associated Press reported that Trumps team spent more than $17000 for the ads, which were just launched on the 17th.
