Fake News: Trump Did NOT Just Fire All The Muslim Employees From White House

Fact Check

  • by: Maarten Schenk

A know fake news website (redinfo.us) posted an article titled "BREAKING: Trump Just Fired All The Muslim Employees From White House. Do You Support This?". Actually the word "article" is too generous, it is basically just a poll repeating the headline:


Other than the assertion in the headline no further information is provided about Trump firing Muslim employees from the White House. No source, no official statement, nothing. No other media sources are reporting on it and even Donald Trump hasn't tweeted about it. If this news were true there would definitely be a major media meltdown going on about it (both in the pro- and anti-Trump camp). So we are going to go ahead and call bullshit on this.

The disclaimer in the about page of the redinfo.us site seems to agree with us:

Keep in mind that everything we publish is in good faith, sometimes the articles are satires and fake and we cannot make any warranties about the completeness, reliability and accuracy of this information. Any action you take upon the information you find on this website (redpinfo.us), is strictly at your own risk. redpeople.us will not be liable for any losses and/or damages in connection with the use of our website.

And yes, they misspel the name of their own site there and mention one of the other sites in their network (redpeople.us is another known fake news website). Based on site metadata these sites are part of a network of fake news sites that also includes:

  • www.dailyinfobox.com
  • www.conservativeinfocorner.us
  • www.redcountry.us

These sites make their owners money mostly through dodgy advertising networks.

It looks like the poll is being shared around blindly by thousands of people as you can see in the Trendolizer graph at the end of this article. If you notice anyone spreading the rumor around you can help by pointing them to this article here because nobody likes being taken advantage of by people spreading fake news to make money though ads.
