  • On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. posted a “get out and vote”
    video on Twitter saying that in “7 DAYS” Republicans needed to
    vote. 
  • Seven days from Wednesday is November 7, a day after Election
    Day. 
  • Trump Jr. told people in Virginia to vote on the wrong day
    last year during a gubernatorial race.

Donald Trump Jr. posted a video on Wednesday encouraging
Republicans to vote on Election Day — but his tweet told people
to go to the polls on the wrong date.

Trump shared the video
on Twitter
Wednesday morning, saying that in “7 DAYS” —
November 7 — Republicans needed to head to the polls.

Election Day is on November 6, six days away. Trump’s video
clarifies that Election Day is the sixth, contradicting the
incorrect message in the tweet’s text. 

People joked on Twitter that the tweet was correct, and that
Election Day was in seven days, apparently hoping to trick
Republican voters.

The oldest son of President Donald Trump posted the Election Day
video on Tuesday alongside his girlfriend, former Fox News host
Kimberly Guilfoyle.

This isn’t the first time Trump Jr. has messed up the date of an
election.

In November 2017,
Trump Jr. urged Virginians to vote in a gubernatorial race on the
wrong day — twice

He told voters to head to the polls “today” in two tweets before
realizing the election wasn’t until the next day. His incorrect
tweets were never deleted. 

President Donald Trump has also fallen victim to telling people
to vote on the wrong day.

In October 2016, he told Floridians to vote on November 28, 20
days after the presidential election. He later gave the correct
date at another campaign rally, according to
The Washington Post
