A gay teenager has trolled the US president by getting his followers to book free tickets to Trump’s rally and then not turn up.
Empty seats were reported at a New Hampshire rally for Donald Trump earlier this month and it’s being attributed to one teenager, a Twitter user called Noah.
The teenager encouraged followers to book tickets to Trump’s rally, in which he was campaigning for a re-election on 15 August, and then not turn up.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Hey everyone you totally shouldn’t go on tr*mp’s website and reserve tickets for his rally and not show up so that thee’s empty seats (the tickets are free) but you should definitely not do that!!”
The tweet gained traction online, and it was retweeted over 37 thousand time.
People jumped on the opportunity to play a trick on the US president.
Twitter users online booked the free tickets and didn't turn up as a form of protest against Trump and his intentions for re-election.

Noah later updated his Twitter followers with good news - they were successful
Noah "didn't think it would happen," and told Out:
I post political stuff on Twitter sometimes, and it’s sort of serious, sort of joking. Because Trump sucks and I just want people to be happy and laughing. I get really sad about Trump being president all the time, so I wanted to post something for people to find something funny in a sh*tty situation.”
