After refusing to denounce white supremacy at the first presidential debate, President Trump took a different path at his Town Hall on NBC.


President Donald Trump on Friday morning tweeted a link to an unapologetically fake news website, appearing to share the satirical story in earnest.

The knowingly fake story came from Babylon Bee, a satire site with a conservative bent, and claimed, in jest, that Twitter was shutting down its platform to prevent the spread of negative news about Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this,” Trump tweeted.

Across internet platforms, the website says its “news” is made up and intended as satire. While it often targets a liberal ideology and Democratic politicians, Trump and other conservatives are occasionally poked fun of, too.
