Twitter marks a Trump tweet 'manipulated media' for the first time

  Twitter marks a Trump tweet 'manipulated media' for the first time In a move that may spur another round of yelling about censorship and Section 230 from the White House, a tweet by Donald Trump has received a special marker — not one of those special markers — from Twitter. In this case, the shoddily-manipulated video clip aims to turn people against “fake news” by creating a fake CNN video about a supposedly racist baby. CNN responded by pointing out that it actually used the real footage to cover a story accurately while imploring the president to “be better” than tweeting fake videos that exploit children.

The American president relayed the video by accompanying it with the message "Thank you to the super inhabitants of the Villages", before deleting it.

A Twitter user published this video, apparently filmed in a private retirement home in Florida, of virulent verbal confrontations between pro and anti-Trump. We see there from the first seconds a man driving a golf cart adorned with signs "Trump 2020" and "America First" to be apostrophed by demonstrators who call him "racist". "White power," he replied twice, fist raised. "White power, there you go, white power. Did you hear that?" Replied one of the demonstrators.

Donald Trump relayed the video with the message "Thank you to the super inhabitants of the Villages", this community for people over 55 who welcomes 115,000 inhabitants in North Florida.

A few hours later, when the controversy began to mount in the American media, Donald Trump deleted his retweet. "President Trump is a big fan of the Villages. He didn't hear the message in this video. What he saw was incredible enthusiasm from his supporters," said a spokesman. from the White House, Judd Deere.
