The post President Donald Trump tweeted, accusing the Democrats of trying to “steal” the US election, has been hidden.
In the post, the Republican President tagged the election as potentially misleading, after predicting he would win a second term, Evening Standard reports.
Mr. Trump’s tweet came early on Wednesday, after securing the battleground state of Florida. Mr Trump also claimed – without any evidence – that the Democrats were trying to “steal” the election.
He tweeted, “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it,”.
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading.” This was a warning note from the social media firm that was pinned to the tweet.
After Twitter hid Mr Trump’s tweet, Facebook also added a warning to the president’s post on their platform.
Underneath Mr Trump’s post claiming “they are trying to STEAL the election”, a message read: “Final results may be different from initial vote counts, as ballot counting will continue for days.”
Meanwhile, one of the most interesting aspects of his tweet was when he misspelt the word “polls”. He wrote: “Votes cannot be cast after the Poles are closed!”
While the Mr Trump was mocked online for the mistake, some people pointed out that the president must have been tweeting with a degree of haste.
