In an election eve preview of what to expect in the coming days, President Trump pushed the limits on Twitter's election-specific policies Monday night.

In a tweet, Trump railed against the Supreme Court's decision to allow Pennsylvania officials to count ballots postmarked by Election Day. The Republican Party has waged a brazen legal onslaught against voting rights throughout key states in recent weeks, a cynical effort designed to better the sitting president's reelection chances.

Twitter pushed back on the president's false claim about Pennsylvania mail-in ballots, hiding it behind a misinformation warning that calls the tweet "disputed." Twitter also disabled non-quote retweets, likes and replies for the hidden tweet, which remains viewable but restricted.

"The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is a VERY dangerous one," Trump tweeted. "It will allow rampant and unchecked cheating and will undermine our entire systems of laws. It will also induce violence in the streets. Something must be done!"

Facebook did not remove the reposted message, but did add a label emphasizing the trustworthiness of voting systems. Three hours after it was published, Trump's Facebook post had collected 63,000 likes and 13,000 comments.
