On Saturday, President Donald Trump tweeted his praise from an alleged ‘supporter’ when they said ‘Trump was working hard for the American people.’ Trump brought attention to the post when he tweeted out: ‘Thank you, Nicole!’

The poster Trump was thanking goes simply by Nicole on Twitter. She describes herself as an entrepreneur and a black conservative.


Turns out, it’s a spam account from a fake supporter, who also happens to have a fake stock photo. A little bit of research on Google revealed that much.

The entire account looks designed to push memes in support of President Trump. There are thousands of fake bot accounts like these to push Trump’s agenda on social media.



A research study was done on Trump’s Twitter followers a few months ago and they found that nearly half of Trump’s followers were fake accounts.

He currently has 31 million such followers – you’d think he wouldn’t need any fake bots to help him out. He is, after all, the President of the United States – he does a pretty good job at getting attention without them.


But, one thing Trump does need is to spread his message. And, this has proven to be a pretty handy way of doing that. The only problem is, Trump likes to diss ‘fake news’ but apparently doesn’t mind having fake supporters.

Bottom line: Nicole’s account isn’t the only one. This is a broad strategy on behalf of the Trump administration and Republicans to win the social media battle currently taking place in the news media.
