The network distributed posts about his support from conservatives, Black Americans, Christians, and followers of the QAnon web of conspiracy theories.

Many operators of the 35 Facebook accounts and 88 Instagram accounts posed as being American. Some administered Trump fan pages, disregarding company laws concerning inauthentic behavior.

The network had a small reach. The Facebook pages were followed by 1,600 accounts, while the Instagram ones by 7,200 accounts.
