Donald J. Trump

Warning Label

Every Facebook post from President Trump since 2:02 AM on Election Day (Nov. 3) until approximately 11:15 AM on Nov. 5 has been flagged with one of Facebook's many 'informational label[s]': Facebook posts from the president ranging from criticisms about ballot counting to simple assertions like "I will be making a statement tonight. A big WIN!" have been tagged with an "informational label" by Facebook. Even a post thanking his supporters was given a label. This move was a late addition to Facebook's bevy of policy changes leading up to the election. Facebook's labels include various different contextual warnings, such as one that says counting mail-in ballots takes a long time, another that says it may take days or even weeks to determine a winner and yet another different label that says an election winner has yet to be determined.
