Former President Donald Trump is again signaling an affinity with believers of the QAnon conspiracies — on Thursday evening he reposted a video originally shared by a QAnon follower containing catch phrases and that integrated Trump into imagery affiliated with the conspiracy movement.

The video includes edited images of Trump that made it appear as if he is holding a playing card with a “Q” on it and holding an American flag encircled by the letter Q. There’s also a slide with the QAnon slogan “WWG1WGA,” an acronym for “where we go one, we go all,” and a man wearing Trump’s signature red tie with a “Q” pin on his lapel.

The conspiracy theory includes the unfounded belief that a cabal of famous Democratic politicians and liberal elites run a child sex trafficking ring, and that Trump will arrange for mass arrests and military tribunals of corrupt politicians, among other outlandish ideas. The FBI has warned that conspiracy theories like QAnon pose a growing domestic terrorism threat.
