Twitter slapped Joe Biden with a formal ‘fact-check’ this week after the President posted phony claims about the ‘Gender Pay Gap’ in America.
“Charlotte, I couldn’t agree more. Women lose thousands of dollars each year, and hundreds of thousands over a lifetime, because of gender and racial wage gaps. I’m committed to building an economy where my daughters have the same rights and opportunities as my sons,” posted Biden with the image of hand-written letter from a young girl.
Twitter quickly clarified the remarks.
“The gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. This myth is incorrect and has been debunked,” wrote Twitter’s Community Notes program.
