Its tweet read: "Dear weak conservatives, never forget that you are not a fight for" we the people "and our president." Attached to the tweet was a picture of Trump and Reagan shaking hands – with an assumed Reagan quote on top.
"For my life, and I never know how to explain it when I met the young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president," the quoted quoted read.
"Cute!" Trump wrote in his own tweet over the picture.
Facts First : While t is the picture right, the assumed quote is false. Ronald Reagan never said of Trump: "For my life, and I never know how to explain it when I met the young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president." [1
Drake told PoliceFact that the picture was taken on November 3, 1987, in a reception in The White House's Blue Room for Artists' Friends and Conservation in Embassies.
The Reagan Foundation did not respond to CNN's remarks on Monday.
In addition to his own repeated false allegations on Twitter, Trump has previously used his account to reinforce misinformation from others.
The verified Twitter account called The Reagan Battalion had about 90,000 followers from Monday. The little-known account that used the same name was quickly suspended from Twitter after Trump had promoted it.
