Donald Trump is the US president. He uses Facebook and Twitter. He likes to say there what he thinks.

Trump tweets about the US voting system. He is not happy with the system. However, Twitter puts a label to this tweet. The label is information for people. The label says that the information in Trump´s tweet can be false.

Trump also tweets about protests in Minnesota. Twitter thinks that the tweet can make the protests worse.

Trump writes similar information on Facebook, too. However, Facebook does not react to it. The company says that Trump´s posts do not break Facebook´s rules.

Facebook´s boss, Mark Zuckerberg, says that Facebook does not check what politicians say. Some people, who work in Facebook, get angry. They think that Facebook must delete the posts.

Difficult words: tweet (to write something on Twitter), voting system (how people choose politicians), tweet (what someone writes on Twitter), false (not true).
