- This is an unfounded claim that originated on a website that has previously published fake news.
Facebook users are watching and sharing a video with the title "It’s real! U.S. military holding White House for Trump’s return."
The problem is that it’s not real.
This post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
The video shows an image of former President Donald Trump and someone in uniform standing together as a narrator reads the text of a story published on July 23 on a website called Real Raw News.
We’ve debunked fake news from this site before.
This particular story contains a number of falsehoods, including that President Joe Biden "has never set foot" in the White House and that Biden has been using director Tyler Perry’s production company to film White House events.
That’s all wrong and unfounded, and so is the claim that the military is controlling the White House awaiting Trump’s return.
We rate it Pants on Fire.
