Did Trump Tweet a Doctored CNN Video of a 'Racist Baby'?


Social media platform Twitter has once again cracked down on a tweet by US President Donald Trump, this time marking it "Manipulated Media".

Trump has shared viral pro-Trump videos originating with Cook before, including a clip showing Joe Biden sneaking up behind himself and giving his own shoulders a squeeze.

"We received a copyright complaint from the rights holder of this video under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and have removed the post, " A spokesman told Business Insider.

The 60-second clip shows an edited version of a viral video from 2019 where a black child and a white child run toward each other to hug.

Underneath the United States president's tweet, the social network added a "manipulated media" label. It led to headlines, like one on the CNN website past year - "These two toddlers are showing us what real-life besties look like".

The post has been hit with a "Manipulated media" warning label by Twitter that takes users to a landing page with more information. "Just as we reported your positions on race (and poll numbers)", CNN replied to the tweet.

In the manipulated version posted by Trump, the white child is branded a "racist baby" and likely Trump voter in a doctored CNN chyron. We'll continue working with facts and invite you to do the same, rather than tweeting fake videos that exploit innocent children. "In addition, we may label Tweets containing synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand their authenticity and to provide additional context".

Twitter twice flagged Trump tweets over the past month.

The social media company also labelled a Trump tweet about Black Lives Matter protests in Minneapolis as "glorifying violence".

Twitter previously labeled a Trump post about fraudulent mail-in ballots with a message that reads, "Get the facts about mail-in ballots", and redirected the public to news articles fact-checking Trump's false claims.

Earlier on Thursday, Facebook removed ads run by the Trump campaign, saying the ads violated its policy against organized hate. The ads, one of which warned of "dangerous MOBS of far-left groups", featured an upside-down red triangle that Nazis once used to identify political opponents - and that campaign officials dismissed as "an emoji".
