It's from his 18th birthday just four months ago — a lavish party in his east European hometown that he says wouldn't have been possible without President-elect Donald Trump. Dimitri — who asked NBC News not to use his real name — is one of dozens of teenagers in the Macedonian town of Veles who got rich during the U. The articles, sensationalist and often baseless, were posted to Facebook, drawing in armies of readers and earning fake-news writers money from penny-per-click advertising. He is one of the more successful fake news pushers in the area. Even with the presidential contest over and Google and Facebook's plans to crack down on fake news makers, money continues to pour in. The teenager is unrepentant about any influence his stories may have had on swaying public opinion.
