Donald Trump’s posts on Facebook will be fact-checked when he leaves office in January.

With this new rule, it would mean that the reach of his posts could be limited if he posts false claims or misinformation. In the past, Facebook has suggested that Mr Donald Trump’s posts have been protected because of his status as president.

Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook has repeatedly said that it is not Facebook’s place to fact-check political speech. He criticized Twitter as the “arbiters of truth” following the app correctly labelling the president’s posts about a rigged 2020 presidential election as false.

The social media giant has also staunchly said that it will not check political advertisements, despite the potential those would have to spread misinformation and disinformation.

However, Facebook currently has policies that exempt Mr Trump from the consequences of his posts due to the ‘newsworthiness’ of his political position. Twitter has similar conditions in place, despite Mr Trump repeatedly breaking their rules.
