Trump video attacking CNN for crying wolf over racism labelled ‘manipulated media’ by Twitter
 

A video posted by Donald Trump accusing CNN and other media outlets of hysteria and hypocrisy in its coverage of racism in America has been labelled “manipulated media” by Twitter, the third time the social network has censored the president in a month.
 

The clip – accompanied by an official campaign video presenting a fictitious account of a white woman wrongly calling out an act of perceived racism by her neighbour – presents doctored news footage with a mis-spelled CNN chyron flashing “Terrified todler runs from racist baby.”

The original video, which went viral on social media in 2019, showed a black toddler and a white toddler running towards each other and hugging. It was published with the headline “These two toddlers are showing us what real-life besties look like” on CNN’s website last year.
 

The clip shared in Trump’s tweet – by noted troll Carpe Donktum, invited to the White House by Trump last summer for his “Social Media Summit” – first shows the part where one of those toddlers is seen running ahead of the other. At one point the banner reads: “Racist baby probably a Trump voter”.
 

The tweeted video, with more than 11.4m views and 332,000 retweets, then goes on to show the original video and concludes: “America is not the problem. Fake news is.”
 

“We may label Tweets containing synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand their authenticity and to provide additional context,” Twitter says in an explanation of its policies posted on its website.
 

Twitter has been under fierce scrutiny from the Trump administration since it fact-checked Trump’s tweets about unsubstantiated claims of mail-in voting fraud. It also labeled a Trump tweet about protests in Minneapolis as “glorifying violence.”
 

The president, who has battled Twitter and other tech companies over alleged censorship of conservative voices on social media platforms, said in late May he would propose legislation to potentially scrap or weaken the law shielding internet companies, in an extraordinary attempt to regulate outlets where he has been criticised.
