US President Donald Trump’s website has been taken offline after a fake ‘seizure’ notice was posted on multiple pages, claiming the president had ‘spreaded’ fake news and was ‘involved in the origin’ of the Covid-19 pandemic.
While it featured the FBI and Justice Department logos, the announcement was written in broken English and without capitalizations, according to screenshots posted on Tuesday evening.
“[We] have evidence that completely discredits mr trump as president,” the notice said, “proving his criminal involvment [sic] and coorperation [sic] with foreign actors manipulating the 2020 election.”
The notice appeared on multiple pages of the donaldjtrump.com site.
