Did Ivanka Trump wear a shirt with a Nazi Swastika design when she visited with a Colorado sheriff? No, that's not true: An image posted on social media showing the purported Swastika pattern on a shirt worn by President Trump's oldest daughter Ivanka is a digitally-altered image using a real photo tweeted by the sheriff.

The fake image was shared in a post (archived here) on August 25, 2019 under the title "Stay blind if you want to".

This is what soclal media users saw:

How do we know this is not real? The photo was taken when Ivanka Trump visited with Dougas County, Colorado, Sheriff Tony Spurlock in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, on July 22, 2019. The Nazi pattern is not on her shirt.
