One individual suggested that Trump Jr. knew exactly what he was posting and that the headline alone would be enough to incense his father’s base.

Assuming Trump Jr. posted the six-year-old article on purpose, one can surmise that the tweet was meant to spark contention amongst the president’s core supporters now that the Florida gubernatorial race between candidates Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis has triggered a recount after the margin between them became much slimmer. Gillum had conceded to DeSantis on Election Night.

In a statement released last week, Gillum said that since his concession speech, “it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported. Our campaign, along with our attorney Barry Richard, is monitoring the situation closely and is ready for any outcome, including a state-mandated recount.”

“Mayor Gillum started his campaign for the people, and we are committed to ensuring every single vote in Florida is counted,” the statement continued.

The president himself weighed in on the Florida race when he railed that the Florida recount effort “is an embarrassment to our Country and to Democracy!”

Gillum soon fired back.

“What’s embarrassing to democracy is not counting every vote — and you, of course,” he wrote at the time.

The two men have a history of sparring publicly and, should Gillum prove victorious, it’s likelier that attacks from both the president and his son will continue.
