Trump quote-tweeted a QAnon account that is linked to a far-right militia group
President Donald Trump on May 31 quote-tweeted a post that included a pro-Trump video and the text: “We are the calm before, during & after the storm.” Above the tweet, Trump wrote, “STRENGTH!” The tweet also included the slogan for the QAnon conspiracy theory, “Where we go one, we go all,” or “WWG1WGA” for short. The account, @SeanCordicon, has since been suspended.
The person Trump amplified is not only a supporter of QAnon, but has repeatedly also affiliated himself with the Three Percenters, a far-right militia movement group.
Cordicon has other ties to Trump’s orbit: The president’s son Eric Trump has previously “liked” one of Cordicon’s tweets, and he has interviewed the brother of Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. In the interview, Cordicon also suggested he has spoken with Flynn directly.
Trump has amplified QAnon accounts on Twitter more than 130 times.
