A Labour party member has tricked US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump into re-tweeting a picture of new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, apparently believing him to be a first-time potential voter.

Twitter user@HamishP95 describes himself as "probably a professional troll" in his Twitter biography.

He tweeted Donald Trump a photo of Mr Corbyn, writing "My Dad is thinking of voting for the first time ever for you."

Mr Trump retweeted the photo, adding "Great".

At the time of writing, the message has been re-tweeted nearly 7,000 times and liked nearly 4,000 times.

Twitter users were more than a little amused.

It's the not the first time @HamishP95 has tried to get Mr Trump to retweet a picture of the man who is now officially the Leader of the the Opposition.

Last time round he was unsuccessful, but seemed pleased by today's result.
