Fact Check: Hallie Biden Did NOT Write On X That Trump Won The 2020 Election -- Post Is From Suspended Account That Impersonated Her Fake Account

Did Hallie Biden, the widow of the president's son Beau Biden, post on X in 2024 that Trump won the 2020 election? No, that's not true: The post originally appeared on an account impersonating her. That account was already suspended in 2022 but screenshots of it occasionally resurface.

The claim reappeared in a post (archived here) on Facebook on March 27, 2024. It contained what seemed to be a recent screenshot of two other posts from X, formerly known as Twitter. The top one stated:

So on election night when I knew
something was very wrong Jill Biden was
on the phone yelling at state legislators
and the people who tabulate the votes to
stop the count. Because there was a deal
worked out: if Trump got too far ahead,
stop the count to rush in fake ballots.
The second post from the screenshot continued:
President Trump won that election and
my entire family knows it.

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

The Facebook post did not indicate dates for the two supposed tweets, leaving the implication that they were recent. Not only are the two tweets fake, but they're nearly 2 years old at the time of writing.

The screenshot shared on Facebook captured the two fake posts from a now-suspended account on X (archived here). Both were published in August 2022, as seen in a screenshot of an archived version of the account saved that month (scroll down to find this section):

Lead Stories wrote about the fake Hallie Biden Twitter account on August 20, 2022, with a story headlined: Fact Check: @HallieBiden Is NOT A Real Account Of Biden's Daughter-In-Law.

In September 2022, a representative of the Beau Biden Foundation (archived here), whose board includes (archived here) Hallie Biden, told AFP Fact Check (archived here):

Mrs. Hallie Biden does not have a Twitter account... Any account bearing her name is fraudulent.
