Trump campaign asks tech giant to mark Biden ad as manipulated. This happened: Meanwhile, Twitter labeled a parody video Trump shared of Biden as manipulated
The splicing is identical to how the Biden campaign cut a video of the Feb. 28 address in a March video that got four Pinnochios from the Washington Post, and was panned by several other fact-checkers.
The president did not say “this is their new hoax” immediately after he said “coronavirus” in his original comments, as the ad makes it appear. He made the hoax comment several sentences later. Trump was still talking about the coronavirus when he said the “hoax” part of the comment, but it was in reference to the media and how it covered his impeachment trial.
