(AP) – Twitter is taking a step to try to fact-check President Donald Trump.

For the first time, the social media site has flagged some of Trump’s tweets.

Two of Trump’s tweets were slapped with warnings yesterday.

One called mail-in ballots “fraudulent” and another said if there is mail-in voting, mailboxes “will be robbed.”

Under each of Trump tweets, there is now a link asking readers to “Get the facts about mail-in ballots” – and it links to a page with fact checks and news stories about Trump’s claims on the subject.
