The Twitter employee who heads the company's site integrity team once called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "a bag of farts," said President Donald Trump is a "racist tangerine," and donated to Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.

Fox News published past tweets by Yoel Roth, who in the past has not held back on the social media platform. On Tuesday, Twitter added warning labels to two of Trump's tweets over concerns that the statements he made about voter fraud and mail-in ballots were not accurate. While it is not clear whether Roth had any direct role in flagging Trump's tweets, the site integrity team he runs, according to his LinkedIn page, is responsible for "developing and enforcing Twitter's rules on platform manipulation, spam, and API access, as well as Twitter's investigation and attribution efforts related to state-backed information operations."

Roth posted in July 2017, "How does a personality-free bag of farts like Mitch McConnell actually win elections?"

In November 2016 he wrote, "I'm just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason."

And in September 2016 ahead of that year's election, he posted, "I've never donated to a presidential campaign before, but I just gave $100 to Hillary for America. We can't f*** around anymore."

Roth has also posted multiple tweets about transvestites, such as this one from September 2010: "It wouldn't be a trip to New York without at least one big scary tranny."

Roth's LinkedIn profile indicates he started working at Twitter in July 2015 as a product trust partner. After holding three other positions there, he became head of site integrity in July 2018.

Twitter spokesman Trenton Kennedy told NPR that Trump's "rigged election" claim has "misleading information about the voting process, specifically mail-in ballots."
