A 22-year-old man from Pennsylvania could be facing up to 22 years in prison after being accused of impersonating family members of former President Donald Trump.
According to prosecutors, Joshua Hall used social media to raise, and keep, thousands of dollars for a fake political organization. He was taken into custody Tuesday.            
He has allegedly pretended to be Trump's 15-year-old son Barron, as well as Trump's sister Eliizabeth, even getting a response on Twitter from the former president.            
It's unclear how Hall is pleading to charges of wire fraud and identity theft.
