Twitter on Thursday night labeled a video posted by Donald Trump as “manipulated media,” its latest effort to flag misinformation being shared by the U.S. president.

The social media company took action hours after Trump had posted a video created by pro-Trump meme creator CarpeDonktum, which suggested that CNN had aired a segment with the chyron “Terrified todler (sic) runs from racist baby.”

The meme goes on to claim CNN had manipulated the original video, which showed two toddlers — one Black and one white — hugging. The meme criticizes “fake news,” telling viewers that “only you can prevent fake news dumpster fires.”
