In 2018, Marx used "Right Here Waiting" to deceive President Donald Trump after he said at a news conference: "I see no reason why it will happen" (Russia, which intervened in the US elections), then withdrew the next day, explaining that it was "wrong" and said: “I see no reason why I wasn't be Russia. " Marx then mocked Trump with tweets“I've missed it. I meant to say, "I wouldn't be right here, waiting for you." Twitter has received over 250,000 likes and 70,000 likes.
