After US President Donald Trump visited the St. John’s Church in Washington DC, a picture has surfaced on the internet in which he can be seen holding the Bible and the board in the backdrop reads – “She Doesn’t Even Go Here”.
In another picture, the text on the billboard read- ‘Don’t be fooled by this shameless photo-op. Never Forget! In order to stage this photo, Trump had protesters tear-gassed so he could pretend to be a church goer’.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above picture and found it to be morphed.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found another picture on the Getty website from the same moment but a different angle when President Trump held the bible up, in front of St. John’s church.
The caption read: “US President Donald Trump poses with a bible outside St. John’s Episcopal Church after a news conference in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Monday, June 1, 2020. Trump promised a forceful response to violent protests across the country before leaving the White House to visit a church across the street that had been damaged by fires”.
As it is clear in the above FAKE vs REAL collage that the picture in question in morphed. Text on the board in the original picture read “Sunday Service Online All Are Welcome The Reverend Rob Fisher. Rector Jane Williken Hague Willian Morris Savannah Ponder”.
In conclusion, our discovery establishes that the picture in question is morphed.
