President Trump shares a tweet from someone posing as actor Jon Voight – before Twitter deletes the entire fake account minutes later
- President Trump was cheated by a tweet from a fake Twitter account posing as actor Jon Voight
- The president has retweeted the post and the actor & # 39; John & # 39; thanks
- Seven minutes later, the fraudulent account was suspended after Twitter heard that it was fake
Donald Trump accidentally retweeted what he thought was a message from 80-year-old Hollywood actor Jon Voight.
The president has retweeted the post and the actor & # 39; John & # 39; thanks, without realizing that the account was fake. The fraudulent account even incorrectly spelled Voight's name and called him John instead of Jon.
Not less than seven minutes after Trump's retweet, Twitter removed the original message and stopped the account, presumably due to impersonation, leaving Trump's tweet empty.
The president has retweeted the post and thanked the actor. He called him & # 39; John & # 39; and misspelled his name. Not less than seven minutes after Trump's retweet, Twitter removed the original message and stopped the account, presumably for imitation, leaving Trump's tweet empty
Trump was deceived by a message from this fake account that pretended to be actor Jon Voight
In the past, Jon Voight actor expressed his support for President Trump and made him the & # 39; the greatest president of this century & # 39; explained. Voight, pictured on the right, is one of the few outspoken conservative actors in Hollywood who openly supports the president
The twitter mix is another blunder on social media for the president, who often misspells words or incorrectly links people's Twitter accounts in his own messages.
In this specific case there were a number of giveaways that were not all what it seemed.
First, the retweet came from a fake account that spelled the name of the actors incorrectly and the cheater had only a few hundred followers.
Earlier this year, Twitter introduced a policy that allows world leaders to violate their rules without being punished or suspended as long as the company has the tweets in the & # 39; public interest & # 39; eight.
However, the company said it would take action on tweets from world leaders promoting terrorism or direct threats of violence against a person.
Twitter said in June that it would place labels on tweets from world leaders that violated its rules explaining why the tweet was not completely removed from the platform.
Just seven minutes later, the fraudulent account was suspended after Twitter was warned that it was acting as the actor
It wasn't long before Twitter users called the president because he was cheated by the fake account.
& # 39; It seems that our stable genius president @realDonaldTrump has done an oopsy and retweeted a video of a fake @ JonVoight account that has now been suspended & wrote one.
& # 39; Gosh, you are a stupid president … this is a fake / poser job Voight tweeter … wait, you are stupid, fake poster president & # 39 ;, added another.
& # 39; You wonder how Trump can become the property of every Dictator out there? He thinks that a bone with 200 followers is the real John Voight. LOL. & # 39; another Twitter user said.
In the past, the actor has often expressed his support for President Trump and in a post on Twitter in August & # 39; the greatest president of this century & # 39; explained.
Voight is one of the few outspoken conservative actors in Hollywood who openly supports the president and in May & # 39; the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln & # 39; called.

Sunday also began with an error-laden morning tweet from the president when he attributed a statement about the US and Turkey ceasefire to his defense minister, Mark Esper.
But in an error that quickly caused a trending hashtag, he named the top military officer & # 39; Mark Esperanto & # 39 ;.
Trump wrote: & # 39; Mark Esperanto, Secretary of Defense, & # 39; The cease-fire holds out very well. There are some minor skirmishes that ended quickly. New areas are resettled with the Kurds. & # 39; American soldiers are not in combat or cease-fire zones. We have secured the oil. Bringing soldiers home! & # 39;
The tweet was shared thousands of times before it was deleted.
