The only problem -- it's a fake account. Georgia only has 14 Congressional Districts, and the account was apparently created years ago as a parody of Tea Party politicians, reports The Wrap.

Georgia-based newspaper Ledger-Enquirer reported on the Twitter profile in 2013, even noticing the profile picture was from the Men's Big & Tall website.

Even with the previous reports, the Trump Organization Executive Vice President retweeted the endorsement Sunday night, and as of Monday afternoon, the retweet had yet to be taken down.

The social media site has played a huge role in the presidential race thus far, acting as a way for candidates to share updates and even take jabs at each other.
