A video recirculating on Twitter claims a woman seen in a video with President Donald Trump is not his wife Melania.

The tweet, from October 2017, stated:"This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie."

The tweet was re-tweeted Saturday, March 9, 2019.

"This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie.

The video zooms in on the face of what the tweet claims is an impostor.

The Twitter account posts some side by side pictures of Melania from Google, and from the CNN video clip.

A response from the White House to CNN, where the video initially aired, was published in 2017, saying the Melania Trump does not have a body double.

An expose from Vox further explains the initial internet phenomenon surrounding the Tweet.
