Hours after Facebook announced a crackdown on QAnon, President Trump used his evening press conference to fan the right-wing conspiracy theory's flames.

"I don't know much about the movement—other than I understand that they like me very much," Trump said at his daily press conference. He added that he's "heard these are people who love our country."

As we've written before, QAnon is an ever-twisting, crowdsourced conspiracy theory about an alleged hidden agent in the Trump administration going after secretive, global pedophilia rings. The theory has mutated from 4chan shitposting to a full-blown right-wing craze that paints Trump as a crusader against all the world's evils.
