To Washington now and president trump taking on Twitter. The president blasting the social media giant for attaching fact-check warn togz some of his tweets labeling them as potentially misleading. Senior white house correspondent Cecilia Vega has the latest. Reporter: This morning, president trump's favorite social media platform is firing back slapping him with a bright blue fact-check right there on two of his unsubstantiated checks about mail-in voting warning get the facts and sending them to news articles that lay out the truth after the president once again falsely claimed mail-in ballots are fraudulent. A smokeswoman for Twitter explaining the tweets contain potentially misleading information and were labelled to provide additional context. The president outraged telling his more than 80 million followers that Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 presidential election and that the company was completely stifling free speech. It comes as Twitter was already under fire for declining to remove another series of the president's tweets in recent days. He's repeated Willy a murder conspiracy involving Joe Scarborough. The social media giant refused to take it down and president trump refuses to back down. Suggesting that Joe Scarborough was responsible. A lot of people suggest that and hopefully someday people will find out. I certainly am very suspicious. Very sad. Very sad and very suspicious. Reporter: Well, Twitter says it has been working to expand its policy so that it can better address tweets like this one about Scarborough and that it hopes to, quote, have changes in place shortly but in the meantime, the president and his allies are now using this to rile up the base accusing, Michael, silicon valley of cutting off the president's direct messaging to supporters. All right, Cecilia, I don't think anybody is surprised by that. Thank you so much.
