Pennsylvania, the subject or Mr Trump's tweet, was also one of his last campaign stops

Twitter has hidden a tweet from President Donald Trump about voting, hours before election day.

Mr Trump tweeted that a Supreme Court decision to allow more time for postal ballots to arrive in Pennsylvania was “very dangerous”.

He once again made the widely debunked claim that “rampant and unchecked cheating” would follow.

Facebook also labelled the message with a fact-check that contradicted the president.

The tweet was hidden behind a warning on the president’s account that the content was “disputed and might be misleading”. Twitter has taken similar action against Mr Trump’s account in the past.

Mr Trump also claimed that the court decision would “induce violence in the streets” and that “something must be done!”

On Facebook, the social network did not hide the post, but added the warning: “Both voting by mail and voting in person have a long history of trustworthiness in the US. Voter fraud is extremely rare across voting methods.”

His rival Joe Biden spent the final hours before polling day urging people to make sure they voted, as well as making explicit and direct attacks on President Trump’s record in office.
