Roth’s Personal Pretend Information
If the President of america could be fact-checked for an opinion that mail-in ballots will result in fraud – with supporting proof from specialists – then Roth may wish to think about self-labeling his personal faux information tweets.

There’s been extra proof of ballot fraud within the previous 24 hours than there has ever been of somebody figuring out as a Nazi within the White Home.
Does Twitter plan on including a label on this tweet?
