FACT CHECK: Trump promotes fake Ronald Reagan quote about him While the photo is real, the supposed quote is fake. Reagan never said of Trump, "...when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president."

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump shared a fake quote from former Republican President Ronald Reagan on Twitter on Monday.

Trump passed along a tweet from an obscure account that called itself "The Reagan Battalion," which appeared to be impersonating a well-known conservative account of the same name. The copycat account had fewer than 300 followers at the time Trump promoted it.
Its tweet read: "Dear weak Conservatives, never forget that you are no match for 'we the people,' and our president." Attached to the tweet was a photo of Trump and Reagan shaking hands -- with a supposed Reagan quote superimposed on top.
"For the life of me, and I'll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president," the supposed quote read.
 
 
"Cute!" Trump wrote in his own tweet above the photo.
Facts First: While the photo is real, the supposed quote is fake. Ronald Reagan never said of Trump, "For the life of me, and I'll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president."
