Campaign manager Bill Stepien insisted President Donald Trump was “alive and well” — which prompted puzzlement and speculation on social media.
Stepien made the pronouncement during a call with reporters as several key states continue counting votes in the presidential election, and almost certainly was a reference to Trump’s chances to get the required 270 electoral votes, but that didn’t stop Twitter users from wondering.

I'm not saying Trump is dead, but this certainly isn't the kind of news they would share with people if they knew he was alive.

Given their penchant for the truth, one conclusion is painfully obvious: He’s dead.
