The X account of Donald Trump Jr. was apparently hacked Wednesday morning as the account posted fake new tweets saying his father “passed away,” he “will be running for president,” and “f” President Joe Biden.
“I’m sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024,” a now-deleted tweet read, as captured by Dataminr and X users.
To be clear, former President Donald Trump remains live and well multiple sources tweeted before the post was deleted.
Also, Trump himself posted on Truth Social.
“If I would have made that speech yesterday at the United Nations, for all of the World to see, including the HORRENDOUS delivery, I would have been run out of politics!” Trump wrote amid his son’s X hacking. “An EMBARRASSMENT to our Country.”
There were other posts by Donald Trump Jr. amid the reported hacking, including saying he is “going to burn the SEC” when he becomes president.
