Trump Slams Twitter’s ‘Hater’ Head Of Fact Checking
President Donald Trump slammed the head of Twitter’s fact-checking policy Yoel Roth on Twitter Thursday saying the platform needs to school him on the many “examples & cases, all over the place” of voter fraud associated with mail-in elections after the platform recently censored the President for the first time.
“So ridiculous to see Twitter trying to make the case that Mail-in Ballots are not subject to FRAUD,” Trump wrote. “How stupid, there are examples, & cases, all over the place. Our election process will become badly tainted & a laughingstock all over the World. Tell that to your hater @yoyoel.”

The platform issued a warning on the President’s earlier Tweet regarding voter fraud flagging it as false information. Roth, who is behind the effort, has a history of political bias and many of his anti-Trump tweets were exposed after the social media company moved to censor the President. The President is expected to sign an executive order late Thursday to regulate Twitter, and social networks, amid the controversy.
