Many of the Republican candidate’s statements have been dismissed as lies or misinformation, including on such topics as his tax returns – he’s the first candidate not to release them since 1976.

Global warming is ‘a hoax invented by the Chinese’, he said – and he long accused President Barack Obama of not being a natural-born US citizen.

But with Americans going to the polls today it has been revealed that some of Donald Trump’s supporters have been tweeting pictures of the 125,000-strong crowd that gathered at Knebworth House to watch Oasis in August 1996, insisting it’s a picture of one of his rallies.

Once the falsehood was revealed, Twitter users asked the Trump supporter if they preferred Noel or Liam.
