The image appears to show a direct message exchange with Donald Trump's Twitter account (@realdonaldtrump), in which Twitter user 'Cantbelocal' asks the Presidential candidate: "If I get 100,000 RTs will you stop running for President?".

The screenshot shows a reply from the @realdonaldtrump account saying "Yes, but it will never happen!"

The user then shared the screenshot on Twitter with the caption "LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN" on December 11th.

The tweet has so far received over 104,000 retweets.

Trump has not acknowledged the tweet, instead tweeting that the national polls are misleading voters as to the strengh of his lead. One tweet he;s retweeted reads "Trump is winning by so much more, it's near 60% nationally. They are all biased polls". Another reads that "the media will only get worse from here".

Whether or not the screenshot is just a clever photoshop remains to be seen but the tweet itself is, at least, entertaining people around the globe.
