Facebook posts carrying a screenshot of a tweet purportedly sent by former US president Donald Trump expressing support for Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto in the next general election are being shared in Kenya. The claim is false: the tweet was fabricated and appeared on July 23, 2021, several months after Twitter permanently suspended Trump’s account for violating the platform’s policy.
