The Ad in question, on twitter comes a week after Twitter unveiled new rules against "manipulated media." twitter stated it will label or remove manipulated media or content that "has been substantially edited in a manner that fundamentally alters its composition, sequence, timing, or framing." Bidens video attempted to have it appear that President Trump called the coronavirus a hoax. In the ad, Trump is seen saying "coronavirus . . . This is their new hoax."
But the Biden campaign cut out more than 120 words in between those two statements which completely changed the context. Trump was actually calling the Democratic politicization of coronavirus a "hoax," not the virus itself. Democrats have seized upon the coronavirus as a means to an ends, even though the ends does not justify the means.
Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know that, right?Coronavirus. They're politicizing it. We did one of the great jobs, you say, ‘How's President Trump doing?' they go ‘Oh, not good, not good.' They have no clue, they don't have any clue. They can't even count their votes in Iowa, they can't even count. No, they can't. They can't count their votes. One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.' That didn't work out too well. They couldn't do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. That was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything, they tried it over and over, they've been doing it since he got in. It's all turning, they lost. It's all turning, think of it, think of it. Andthis is their new hoax.
The Washington Post editor stated "This effectively skews reality and leaves the viewer to wonder what or who related to coronavirus is, in fact, a hoax?"
