Less than two months before Election Day, President Donald Trump took his campaign tactics against Joe Biden to a new low, retweeting an image on Tuesday that baselessly accused the former vice president of being a pedophile.

(CNN)Less than two months before Election Day, President Donald Trump took his campaign tactics against Joe Biden to a new low, retweeting an image on Tuesday that baselessly accused the former vice president of being a pedophile.

According to a Twitter spokesperson the tweet Trump retweeted Tuesday that falsely accused Biden of being a pedophile "is currently not in violation of the Twitter rules. " The spokesperson did not explain why.

The President's misinformation tweet about Biden and Carter is not occurring in a vacuum.

As Biden competed in the Democratic presidential primary in 2019, multiple women did come out publicly to say the former vice president had made them feel physically uncomfortable when they interacted with him in-person.

Victims of domestic and sexual violence do not always tell consistent stories about their abusers and their experiences, and Reade has said she did not widely share the allegation against Biden around the time that she says it happened, making contemporaneous corroboration difficult to come by.

And as he faced allegations of sexual misconduct which he angrily denied in 2016, then-candidate Trump held an appearance with three women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior.
