Twitter hid the Trump tweet, saying "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process."

Backing its action, Twitter said that the action was in line with its Civic Integrity Policy. "We placed a warning on a Tweet from Donald Trump for making a potentially misleading claim about an election. This action is in line with our Civic Integrity Policy," Twitter Safety tweeted.

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the integrity of the electoral process, alleging that mail-in voting will lead to fraud.

Twitter, long criticized for not acting against baseless Trump claims, has asserted itself in recent months, flagging such comments and others in which Trump was seen as glorifying violence.
