Donald Trump’s son is reportedly “very concerned” that the political news he tweets on a daily basis could be used to help Hillary Clinton win the election, according to a New York Times report.
According to the Times, the younger Trump sent a tweet about the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hack on Sunday, which the Times reported contained “a link to a video that appeared to show a person wearing a mask speaking in a Russian accent” during an interview with a “person of interest.”
“I think the link to the video was to some political content, and it was a very troubling thing to see,” the president’s son reportedly told the Times.
The tweet, which was shared by Trump Jr., was the first to use the hashtag #DNChacked.
Trump Jr.’s account quickly followed up with a subsequent tweet that included the same link.
The Times reported that Trump Jr.-linked tweets “seem to suggest that Mr. Trump and the president, who are close allies, may be looking for ways to discredit the Democrats.”
Trump Jr. did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump Jr., who is reportedly a staunch supporter of the president and has reportedly spoken to the president about Russian meddling, has previously said he was “not involved in the hacking” and has denied his father was behind it.
Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has also said he does not have any ties to Russian hackers.
