On August 5, a Twitter account with 146,000 followers, belonging to somebody named Nicole Mincey, posted this message: “Trump working hard for the American people…..thanks❤????????” Trump gave it his official stamp of approval: a retweet. ““Thank you Nicole!” he added. Trump’s retweet got 49,000 likes and 10,000 retweets of its own.
Trump was had. There is no Nicole Mincey, and Twitter suspended that account a day later.
