Fact Check: Trump's Older Sister, Elizabeth Trump Grau, Did NOT Tweet In Support Of The President Spoof

Did Donald Trump's older sister, Elizabeth Trump Grau, tweet in support of the president? No, that's not true. The "tweet" was created on a parody account. It's not real.

The claim appeared in a post (archived here) by President Trump on November 20, 2020. He shared an article that was based off a tweet from an account that purported to belong to Trump Grau. The president wrote:

Thank you Elizabeth, LOVE!

This is what the post looked like on Twitter at the time of writing:
