Joe Biden ARRESTED by military to reinstate Trump as president, claims bizarre FB hoax
A page called Breaking New 247 had reportedly shared the fake news of Joe Biden getting arrested to bring Trump back
A strange Facebook Live hoax is doing the rounds on social media, falsely claiming that President Joe Biden has been arrested as part of a plot to make Donald Trump president again. The post which is reportedly linked to a QAnon conspiracy theory was shared on the social networking site on Monday, July 26 and has since been viewed more than 59,000 times.
A page called Breaking New 247 reportedly shared the fake news writing, "MILITARY CALLED AN EMERGENCY MEETING FOR MAKING TRUMP AS A PRESIDENT | BIDEN ARRESTED." In the post, a picture was shared of Lt Gen Todd Semonite at an event to discuss Covid, according to a report in USA Today.
The conspiracy that Trump will be reinstated this summer has become increasingly popular in recent weeks. The theory was first peddled by members of QAnon and came after the former president's campaign failed to provide evidence of widespread election fraud and had lawsuits thrown out across the country.
Attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas were reportedly handed out a seven-point plan whose intention was to return Trump to office. Forbes reporter Andrew Solender had shared an image of the card on Twitter with the plan printed on it. The plan reportedly also involved removing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, eventually installing Trump in her place.

The first step said: “Reveal Achilles Heal: Pull back the curtain on the horror show that is today’s Democratic Party”. "Watch Pelosi melt, like the Wicked Witch of the West”. As per the reports, the card seems to have been made by a group called Patriots Soar, which was not linked to the organizers of the conference.
According to USA Today, there is no "constitutional way for Trump to become president before Biden's term is over" more so because "top military leaders have spoken out against using the armed forces to mediate election-related disputes." Biden has not been arrested and has reportedly even made public appearances since the video was published.
Earlier this week, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell claimed that both President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will resign on August 13. His speculation came after he vowed to show proof that the election was stolen during his "cyber symposium" event. While speaking to Real America's Voice host Steve Bannon, Lindell said that he was "serious" that the White House leaders will no longer be in office by the second week of August. "The first one would be, once we have the symposium, by the night of the 12th or the morning of the 13th, if everyone has seen it, including the administration that's in there now that didn't win, maybe, you know, Biden and Harris would say, hey, we're here to protect the country and resign!"
