Fact Check: NO Evidence Trump's Real Voice Used In Video Endorsing Film Claiming 300 Million Americans Will Die In A Matter Of Weeks Fake Voice

Was Donald Trump's real voice used in a video endorsing a documentary warning that 300 million Americans will die in an attack on the power grid in a matter of weeks? No, that's not true: There is no proof that Trump ever made the statements in the video. A search of Trump's campaign website and of Google's index of thousands of credible information sources showed zero matches that would corroborate that Trump said what the Trump-like voice says in the video.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here) where it was published on Facebook on November 15, 2023. It opened with a voice saying:

300 million Americans will die in a matter of weeks

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

One of the pair of videos that make the same claim opens with a photo of Trump at a podium (below) and the soundalike voice juxtaposed with series of images and video clips of Trump.

The voice in the video purporting to be Trump instructs viewers to watch a "scathing documentary," made by Teddy Daniels, a former candidate (archived here) for office in Pennsylvania. The caption on the Facebook post claims, "Whistleblower Sounds ALARM On Impending "Attack...," and the video says Russia and China are plotting something "so sinister" it will "destroy our way of life," but the video offers no proof or details of what the attack will entail nor does it provide independent corrobration of the claim.

The photo of Daniels with Trump shown in the video, and posted below, is on both his Facebook page (archived here) and Instagram page (archived here):

Lead Stories reached out to Daniels to enquire about the claimed endorsement. Daniels' Facebook page makes no mention of Trump supporting his documentary.

A site search of the Donald J. Trump campaign website (archived here) found zero instances of the phrase "Three hundred million Americans will die in a matter of weeks."

Similarly, a search of Google's index of thousands of credible information sources (archived here) of all political persuasions found no instances of independent reports that Trump had endorsed the documentary or its claims news reports of Trump endorsing the documentary or making the comments about 300 million Americans dying within a matter of weeks.

Lead Stories has reached out to the office of Trump and will update the story when a response is received.
