Hackers just took down the Trump campaign website, leaving a message in broken English that claims that President Donald Trump's administration created the coronavirus.
Below the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice seals, the note left behind on the seized site states "the world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded daily" by the president. "[I]t is time to allow the world to know the truth."
The text went on to allege that internal classified information is exposed, "proving that the trump-gov is involved in the origin of the corona virus." The threat levels that there purportedly is evidence that "completely disrupts" Trump as president, corroborating his "criminal involvement" with foreign actors manipulating the 2020 elections. "[T]he US citizens have no choice."
"[T]oday is the day - the whole world can decide if they want to know the truth or not," the letter continued, providing readers with the choice to "Yes, share the data" or "No, do not share the data."
By the deadline, the hackers will supposedly "compare the funds" and "execute the will of the world." In both cases, participants will be informed. "[I]dentify our key," the unnamed authors signed off.
It was unclear how long the message was visible before the entire webpage appeared to be taken offline around 7:25 p.m. ET. The site has since been restored.
