One of Donald Trump Jr.’s social media accounts was reportedly hacked on Wednesday morning after a series of wild posts appeared on it, including claims that his father had died and that he would take his place in the 2024 presidential election.
“I am sad to announce that my father Donald Trump has passed away. I will run for president in 2024,” reads one of the posts on X, the website formerly known as Twitter.
Other posts included comments on North Korea, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the late sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein. The posts disappeared from Trump’s page about 30 minutes after they first appeared, suggesting he had regained control.
Neither Trump Jr. nor his father immediately issued a statement about the apparent hacking attack.
