Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Checkyourfact.com: “FACT CHECK: Did Trump Tweet That He Won’t Send Coronavirus Stimulus Checks To People Who Tweet ‘#NotMyPresident’?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An image shared on Facebook claims President Donald Trump tweeted that he will not send coronavirus stimulus checks to people who tweeted “#NotMyPresident” in the last four years.

The claim that Trump said on Twitter that he would not send coronavirus stimulus checks to Americans who have tweeted “#NotMyPresident” in the last four years has been circulating online since at least March 17.

“Yes, I ordered the Treasury Secretary to send checks to Americans!” reads the alleged tweet. “First however, we will go through your social media history from the last 4 years and search for any post with #NotMyPresident in it. I wouldn’t think of offending you with a check if I’m not your president! #MAGA.”

There is, however, no evidence that Trump ever tweeted the statement. The tweet appears nowhere on his Twitter timelines, and ProPublica’s archive has no record of him deleting it. (RELATED: No This Viral Image Doesn’t Show Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s Tweet About School Closures)

The page’s “About” section says, “My goal is to make a fake tweet so realistic, it gets investigated by Snopes.”
