Twitter has applied a warning label to President Donald Trump’s Thursday morning tweet claiming that the upcoming election “may never be accurately determined” because of mail-in voting.

Trump tweeted on Thursday: “Because of the new and unprecedented massive amount of unsolicited ballots which will be sent to “voters”, or wherever, this year, the Nov 3rd Election result may NEVER BE ACCURATELY DETERMINED, which is what some want. Another election disaster yesterday. Stop Ballot Madness!”

The tweet now includes a notice for users to “learn how voting by mail is safe and secure,” which when clicked on, redirects to a page with information about mail-in voting with the headline, “Voting by mail is legal and safe, experts and data confirm,” and a series of tweets from various news sources about voting by mail.

The company later tweeted: “We’ve added a label to this Tweet for making a potentially misleading statement regarding the process of mail-in voting, and to offer more context for anyone who may see the Tweet. This action is in line with our recently-updated Civic Integrity Policy.”

The label was also added to another Trump tweet about mail-in voting on Thursday, in which the president said: “The big Unsolicited Ballot States should give it up NOW, before it is too late, and ask people to go to the Polling Booths and, like always before, VOTE. Otherwise, MAYHEM!!! Solicited Ballots (absentee) are OK.”
