FACT CHECK: Did Nancy Pelosi And Maxine Waters Pose In Front Of A ‘Trump 2020’ Sign?

Aryssa Damron | Fact Check Reporter

An image shared on Facebook claimed to show House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters standing in front of a “Trump 2020” campaign sign.

“This is so funny,” the image reads. “Keep it posted on Fakebook and other social media.”

Verdict: False

This is a doctored image. The original photo does not feature the campaign sign.

Fact Check:

This image attempts to mock Pelosi and Waters, who have been vocal opponents of President Donald Trump. However, the photo is doctored. The original image was shared on Waters’ Twitter back in February.

“Last week, the @american_heart and Congressional Caucus for Women hosted the annual congressional wear red day photo!” Waters tweeted alongside the image.

Pelosi shared the photo some months later while wishing Waters a happy birthday over Twitter. Compared to the meme, everything in the picture – from the time on the wall clock to the lady shown in the background – is the same, except for the Trump poster.

While Waters has long advocated for the impeachment of Trump, Pelosi has generally taken a more cautious approach. Pelosi recently said that Trump was becoming “self-impeachable.”
