FACT CHECK

When we fact-checked the viral picture, it revealed that it is a fake picture and it was not President Donald Trump in the rescue boat.

Kevin Roose, NYT’s business columnist, who has taken on writing about social media and US politics, triggered an avalanche of memes and mostly sarcastic comments on Twitter when he reposted a picture showing US President Donald Trump handing a MAGA cap to a hurricane victim standing waist-deep in muddy waters.

The original photo was taken during the Texas flooding in 2015 and its doctored version resurfaced during Hurricane Harvey.
