Donald Trump Jr, the eldest son of former US president Donald Trump, is making headlines after a post on his X account announced his father was dead and he was now in the presidential race — the account on the microblogging website has reportedly been hacked on the face of it.
"I'm sad to announce, my father Donald Trump has passed away," read a tweet from Trump Jr.'s official X account, formerly known as Twitter.
"I will be running for president in 2024."
Several Community Notes, a tool that enables users to fact-check posts or add crucial context to them in order to clear up misinformation, were posted in response to the tweet.
A series of humourous, sarcastic and concerning reactions followed this tweet.
Parallel to Donald Trump Jr's X post, billionaire Rupert Murdoch has also wished for Donald Trump's death.
Murdoch, 92, has allegedly turned into a "frothing-at-the-mouth" foe of the 77-year-old former US president, frequently expressing the ideas "This would all be solved if... " and "How could he still be alive, how could he?"
After Trump entered US politics in 2015 and won the presidency the following year, he developed a symbiotic connection with Fox News and other businesses in Rupert Murdoch's rightwing media empire.
