Donald Trump’s son announces US President’s death on Twitter

The X-profile of Donald Trump’s son was apparently hacked: several bizarre messages could previously be read there.

The death of Donald Trump, threats against North Korea or insults against Joe Biden: several bizarre messages could be read on the X-profile (formerly Twitter) of the son of former US President Donald Trump on Wednesday. “I am sad to announce that my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will be running for president in 2024,” was one of the messages from Donald Trump Junior that was briefly posted on his profile.

However, the tweets disappeared again during the day. The right-wing extremist news portal “The National Pulse”, citing Trump Junior’s staff, reported that his profile had been hacked. Trump now has his profile back under control. Trump Junior has not yet commented publicly on the incident.
