The Washington Examiner’s official Twitter account tweeted on Monday that it was “hacked” after a tweet claiming “Trump is going to hell” was posted to its account early Monday morning.
The Washington Examiner’s Twitter feed was hacked and a tweet was posted that did not come from our staff. We are taking appropriate action and will issue a further statement if necessary.

The tweet went out around 5 a.m. EST and was deleted by 7 a.m. It claimed Trump was going to hell because the Bible is clear on its opinion of “rich adulterers.” The tweet also criticized the Examiner for “promoting ‘Trump and God.'”
