Trump blames AI manipulation for his mistakes. US Democrats have released nearly three dozen videos of bizarre statements and mistakes by Donald Trump as part of an investigation into the president's alleged mishandling of classified information. The videos show Trump mispronouncing names, confusing people and forgetting things. On his own social network, Trump claims that these videos were manipulated by AI. This shows the real danger of deepfakes: if everything can be faked, nothing is true beyond a shadow of a doubt. Trust in the media is completely undermined. The AI industry may need labels for real content more than for fake content.
