The move adds to the growing list of rule-breaking posts on the platform from the president. 

Twitter on Sunday morning tagged another post from Donald Trump in which this time it appeared the president was attempting to dissuade people from voting in the upcoming election.

Around 7:30 a.m. ET, Trump tweeted, "So now the Democrats are using Mail Drop Boxes, which are a voter security disaster. Among other things, they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times. Also, who controls them, are they placed in Republican or Democrat areas? They are not COVID sanitized. A big fraud!"

The social media platform in turn tagged the post for breaking its rules about "civic and election integrity" and released an explanation under its Twitter Safety handle.

"We placed a public interest notice on this Tweet for violating our Civic Integrity Policy for making misleading health claims that could potentially dissuade people from participation in voting," the Twitter handle shared.

A number of Trump's tweets have been tagged in the past, such as in the instance of the president attempting to glorify violence. He has also had a video tagged over its accused manipulation.

Trump has threatened to crack down on the platform over what he feels is targeted harassment.
