Trump took to Twitter yesterday to tell his 1.6million followers that he had an announcement. Before he could actually make it, however, financial adviser Douglas Kass tweeted:

“High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.

The tycoon and Apprentice host, who has a history of making false allegations about the President, will allegedly claim that the papers show Barack and Michelle Obama seriously considering splitting up in 2000, reports

Trump’s spokespeople have not denied Kass’ tweet, but Trump’s right-hand man, Michael Cohen, did deny that Trump would be speaking about an anonymous rumour that Obaba dealt cocaine at college. Last year Trump was very vocal about his now discredited ’birther’ beliefs, that Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii, and is therefore disqualified from being President of the United States.

The timing of Trump’s tweets, the day after the last presendential debate indicates a deliberate dirty campaign by America’s far right.
