The Republican Party’s 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump is known for using his Twitter account to promote his books and other properties, but his latest foray into fantasy came in a speech that was supposed to promote the book he has been writing, Dreams: the Art of Making Your Dreams Come True.
While Trump is now being called out for using an alias to tweet, the real author of the speech has not released the real name of the speaker.
The speech, which was posted on his personal Twitter account in late October, featured several tweets in which Trump used a variety of fantasy-themed words to describe his experiences.
The tweets come just days after the real-life author of Dreams was reportedly fired by the publisher of the book after she tweeted out her book cover to a man who called her a “fake.”
She later tweeted that she did not mean to insult anyone and apologized.
However, as The Washington Post previously reported, the fake was actually a young man who claimed to be from New Jersey, who has since claimed he is an aspiring writer.
According to The Washington Times, the author of one of Trump’s books, author Michael Hastings, was also fired from his publishing company after he used a fictionalized account to tweet about his book.
In response to the plagiarism scandal that has been rocking the Republican Party, Trump has been using Twitter to defend himself.
In an interview with Sean Hannity earlier this month, Trump called on Democrats to stop using the word “fake” when referring to the Democratic Party.
He also said that he will continue to use the phrase “fake news” to describe any story that he believes is false.
