Who is James Maxwell Trump?
James Maxwell Trump revealed his identity as one of the most secretive White House insiders who has been sharing secrets about President Donald Trump for the last three years. However, tweeps are torn about the newly revealed identity of the Twitter account known as “Rogue Senior White House Advisor.”
The Rogue Senior White House Advisor account claimed to be James Maxwell Trump
The Rogue Senior White House Advisor account did so in dramatic fashion, claiming in a long video to be “James Maxwell Trump” — apparently the long-secret son of the president on July 4th. The account posted what appeared to be a birth certificate as proof before deleting all its past tweets, changing the display name to “Jimmy Trump,” and ceasing all tweeting.
The name appeared to be an attempt to connect Trump to the recently arrested Ghislaine Maxwell for her alleged involvement in now-deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein’s child abuse ring. The birth certificate posted online names her as the person’s mother, though there is no evidence that Maxwell was pregnant during that time.
Most tweeps have doubts about the alleged revelation with many pointing out that the birth certificate offered as proof that the person was named James Maxwell Trump was identical to one of the first search results for a birth certificate picture on Google.
No, the James Maxwell Trump nonsense is not real. Do any of you people know how to Google?

Even another alleged anonymous White House account, known as “Angrier White House Staffer,” called out the revelation as fake.
I'll be calling the NY Dept. of Vital Records on Monday.

The Twitter Account had Gained Popularity in the past two Years
The Twitter account gained popularity and a huge following in the last two years, claiming to be a White House insider with direct access to the president. During that time, the account racked up an impressive list of followers, including The Atlantic and Reuters, but also plenty of doubt about whether the account was real or just a long-running attempt to troll the president’s critics.
Throughout the week leading up to the Fourth of July, the account had been teasing that it would be revealing the true identity of the person behind it, with the announcement coming on Independence Day.
