Trump ‘retruths’ video laced with QAnon staples

Former President Donald Trump shared a video on his Truth Social account laced with QAnon conspiracy monograms and other symbols.

Accompanied by background music, the video shared a litany of memes glorifying Trump and, at times, painting him as a messianic figure while lamenting his 2020 loss at the hands of President Joe Biden. Trump has ratcheted up his trafficking in the controversial conspiracy theory in recent days, drawing sharp criticism from politicos.


A user by the name of Dragonheart7 shared the QAnon-laced video with a series of emojis, saying, “IF YOU KNOW THE ABOVE HINT YES HE WILL,” in an apparent nod to Trump vying for reelection in 2024.

The video, which Trump shared with his 4 million-plus followers, begins with an image of a giant “Q” superimposed over his face alongside the text: “Information Warfare. It’s time to wake up.” Other memes shared in the roughly one-minute video hail Trump as “God’s greatest warrior” and the “greatest president in modern history.”

It contains multiple memes with the “Q” monogram, as well as memes that insist he was the winner of the 2020 election.

Trump also recently shared a post from a user showing a picture of Jesus Christ with the caption, “Jesus is the Greatest. President @realDonaldTrump is the second greatest.”

QAnon is a conspiracy theory that centers on an anonymous 8kun account named “Q” that sends cryptic messages to followers making several claims, including that Trump is waging a campaign against an evil cabal of Democrats and other elites who secretly run the country while engaging in satanic child-eating practices and pedophilia.

Many fervent QAnon followers believed that Trump would overcome his election loss and resume his presidency before the 2024 election.

Throughout much of his presidency, Trump had largely steered clear of QAnon, while occasionally tweeting conspiratorial videos as well as giving the movement winks and nods from time to time. He also refrained from disavowing the conspiracy theory. At one point in 2020, a reporter asked him about QAnon.

“Is that supposed to be a bad thing?” he replied.

In recent days, however, he has brazenly spread QAnon content. Last week, for example, he retruthed an image of him donning a Q lapel pin accompanied by the phrase, “The Storm is Coming,” in a nod to his final victory in which QAnon supporters believe his enemies will be tried, PBS reported.


Critics note that QAnon not only peddles false information, but it has also been credited for fomenting violence. Recently, the daughter of a Michigan man who shot his wife and injured one of his daughters pinned the blame on his breakdown on QAnon.
