Facebook will not permit videos of President Donald Trump telling North Carolina voters casting their ballots by mail to then try to vote in person to be posted on the platform, Politico reports.

The social media company said the video violates the platform’s policies against voter fraud. It is illegal to vote twice in any election.

During a visit to North Carolina on Wednesday, Trump told voters casting ballots by mail to head to a polling site to check to see if their vote was counted.

“They are going to have to check their vote by going to the poll and voting that way because if it tabulates, then they won’t be able to do that,” Trump told reporters. “So let them send it in, and let them go vote. And if their system is as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they will be able to vote.”

A Facebook spokesperson said the videos will be removed “unless it is shared to correct the record.”

The removal will apply to posts that either share the video without any context or express support for Trump’s remarks. The company said it had not yet identified any videos that fell under either category.
