The president of the United States this weekend promoted a conspiracy theory alleging that the family of his 2016 election opponent was involved in a high-profile death that had been ruled a suicide. He was doing this for the second time.President Donald Trump's retweeting of a Jeffrey Epstein conspiracy theory looks a whole lot like when he trafficked in a similar conspiracy about Clinton White House aide Vince Foster's suicide.
"#JeffreyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton and & now he's dead," Terrence K. Williams tweeted, appending the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount before having his tweet elevated by Trump.This is one of the biggest conspiracy theories Trump has ever elevated, but it's hardly the only one. Below are 22 others. Trump didn't technically espouse each and every one, but he elevated all of them - no matter how specious and/or ridiculous.
