Trump goes after ‘hater’ Twitter fact-checking boss who ‘called his team “NAZIS” and donated to Hillary Clinton’ – The Sun
PRESIDENT Donald Trump has gone after the "hater" Twitter fact-checking boss who "called his team 'NAZIS' and donated to Hillary Clinton."
Trump slammed Twitter on Thursday after the social media platform's head of site integrity, Yoel Roth, called the President's team "actual nazis" in a resurfaced tweet.
Trump wrote to Twitter: "So ridiculous to see Twitter trying to make the case that Mail-In Ballots are not subject to FRAUD.
"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."
Yoel Roth's tweets resurfaced on Wednesday after Twitter for the first time prompted readers to check facts in tweets sent by Trump, warning his claims about mail-in ballots were false and had been debunked by fact-checkers.
On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted: "Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow."
Roth's controversial resurfaced tweets from January 22, 2017, read: "The 'you are not the right kind of feminist' backlash to yesterday’s marches has begun. Did we learn nothing from this election?"
That same day, Roth also wrote to Twitter: "Yes, that person in the pink hat is clearly a bigger threat to your brand of feminism than ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE."
Roth also once referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as "bag of farts" and donated to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016.
In September 2016, Roth admitted he donated $100 "to Hillary for America" – adding in his tweet: "We can't f*** around anymore."
He also once wrote: "I'm just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason."
Roth's anti-Trump posts prompted many to question the Twitter employee's personal integrity.
Earlier this week, Trump slammed Twitter for labeling his tweets with "fact-checks" for the first time after he posted about "rigged" mail-in votes.
He said Twitter was "interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election" and insisted he would not tolerate it.
Twitter on Tuesday used a blue exclamation mark notification prompting readers to “get the facts about mail-in ballots" after Trump tweeted.
People were then directed to a page with news articles and information about the claims aggregated by Twitter staffers.
Trump later tweeted: "Twitter is completely stifling free speech, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!"
Meanwhile, Trump's "leaked executive order" has targeted Facebook and Twitter for "censoring" and called on the Federal Communications Omission to change the law.
The order, which was seen in draft form by Reuters, will reportedly be signed by Trump on Thursday.
