A Fake Donald Trump Twitter Account Was Just Removed For Spreading Election Falsehoods along with Linking To “2 Girls, 1 Cup”

The account, which had existed since 2015, was suspended six minutes after BuzzFeed News asked Twitter about the idea. The account used the username @realDonadTrump, which omitted the “L” in Donald however otherwise resembled the president’s real account.

Before being taken down, the idea targeted Republicans using a hoax about the wrong voting date. By far, its most successful tweet was a false claim about Antifa members pretending to be Trump supporters by wearing MAGA hats.

Twitter did not comment on why the account was allowed to operate on its website for potentially three years.
