Category: Politics 76 0

The picture was not taken at a Trump rally, but rather at a black family reunion in Cincinnati last year.

On Saturday morning, Donald Trump shared a tweet from a supporter that purported to show a black family on the “Trump Train.”

“American Families For Trump: We need a common sense PRESIDENT,” the caption attached to the photograph reads.

The photograph was originally shared by @Don_Vito_08 on Saturday morning, just three minutes before Trump’s tweet. A small watermark of the Twitter account’s avatar is visible in the bottom right of the picture.

In March, Trump was criticized for sharing an unflattering image of Heidi Cruz compared to his wife, Melania. That tweet and image also came from @Don_Vito_08.

Neither the Trump campaign nor @Don_Vito_08 responded to requests for comment from BuzzFeed News on Saturday.

As many people on Twitter were quick to point out, the photograph first appeared last year on an article from Cincinnati, Ohio station WCPO about the Midwest Black Family Reunion in August.
