Former President Donald Trump is well known for his often brash and incendiary statements, but his latest statement has the internet scratching its head.
Wednesday morning, Liz Harrington—the ex-President's current spokeswoman—shared an official Trump statement via Twitter.

Trump named Harrington his chief spokesperson in June.
She had previously worked as a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee (RNC). Harrington said she is honored to work for Trump, saying at the time of her appointment Trump's "fighting spirit is needed now more than ever."
She has also backed Trump's "Big Lie" the 2020 election was stolen.
Harrington made numerous false claims about the election while still working for the RNC, including her claim President Joe Biden could not have won 81 million "real votes" because he had small crowds at his campaign events.
There has been no confirmation about what prompted Trump to issue his strange three-word statement. It comes after CNN reported federal investigators suspected Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Allen Weisselberg lied in testimony during the investigation of Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen three years ago.
Speculation Weisselberg might flip on his former boss has been strong since his arrest in late June.
