Trump Didn't Tweet About Madonna
Fabricated Tweet(Screenshot).

The Claim

US President Donald Trump sent condolences for the death of ‘Maradona’ but actually hinted at ‘Madonna’ and her music.

Emerging story

A screenshot of a tweet from the U.S. President Donald Trump claims he was confused Diego Maradona with Madonna. The screenshot circulating claims that Trump sent a tweet reading: "Very sad to hear about the death of Maradona. A great person. Her music was wonderful. I remember listening to her albums in the early 1980s. Rest In Peace!"

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar's investigation found nothing related to the claim circulating. We didn't find such a tweet on Trump's official account @realDonaldTrum and Politwoops, a project by ProPublica that archives deleted tweets from politicians.
Trump did not send a tweet confusing Maradona with Madonna. This is not the first viral screenshot of a tweet by Donald Trump that is morphed and misleading.
