No, these aren’t authentic tweets from President Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law

If Your Time is short

  • These tweets were sent from an imposter account that has since been suspended. 
 

Hallie Biden, the widow of President Joe Biden’s late son Beau, isn’t spilling purported family secrets, though a recent Instagram post suggests otherwise. 

"The press is also covering up serious health issues that my father in law is facing," reads what looks like a screenshot of a tweet from @HallieBiden. "The plan is for Kamala to get a one track ride to the nomination in 2024. I miss Trump and my entire family and I are no longer on speaking terms because of what Jill is putting Joe through." 

"I actually personally heard my ex-father in law talking about raiding President Trump in the White House. Joe knew. Everything."

"Tweets by Hallie Biden," said the caption on the Instagram post sharing the screenshot. 

The Instagram 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 Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)

The Twitter account @HallieBiden was suspended for violating the platform’s rules. 

A spokesperson for the Beau Biden Foundation, a charity organization that Hallie Biden chairs, told USA Today in September that she doesn’t have a Twitter account and that "any account bearing her name is fraudulent."

An Aug. 31 archive of the Twitter account shows that its bio said "My beloved Beau’s widow and crackhead Hunter’s ex." The account also lacked a blue checkmark, which at the time would have signaled that the account was official and verified. 

We rate claims that the president’s daughter-in-law tweeted plans for Vice President Kamala Harris to run in 2024, among other claims, Pants on Fire!
