QANON fans have reportedly pushed back Donald Trumps "real presidential inauguration" later this month following a "false flag" March 4 date at the Capitol being a bust.
The group – known for their conspiracy theories regarding Trump and their baseless claims about widespread election fraud – were allegedly convinced the 74-year-old businessman-turned-politician would become president again on March 4.
However, Trump was not inaugurated on the 4th and the awaited date is now March 20.
QAnon supporters' anticipation for the former president's suspected return to the White House comes after a "military investigation" into President Joe Biden.
March 4 was believed by some QAnon fans to be a false flag trap orchestrated by Antifa.
Security had been upped around the Capitol after "concerning" intelligence was detected ahead of March 4 amid fears of potential violence following the chaos which unfolded on the hill on January 6.
The House of Representatives also canceled its March 4 session due to the threat that a militant group would attempt to breach the Capitol.
The idea that Trump would be inaugurated stems from the "sovereign citizen" movement that believes that in 1871 a law was secretly passed which turned the US into a corporation, disregarding the American government of the founding fathers.
A QAnon supporter, identified as Ken, reportedly told Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel about the newly forecasted "inauguration date."
Weigel tweeted last month: "Met Ken, who informed me that Trump is still in command of the military, and Trump will be inaugurated again on March 20.
"(Biden is acting as president as a ruse while the Pope and others are rounded up.)"
He also shared a screengrab of the conversation he transcribed, which showed Ken to say: "Trump is in charge of the military.
"See, there's this clause in the constitution that says that power doesn't transfer until March 20."
Meanwhile, according to Business Insider, one subscriber wrote on the QAnon Telegram channel on Thursday (March 4): "Don't be disappointed.
"The race is not run yet and I have reason to believe March 20 is also possible."
Another Qanon fan reportedly wrote: "We still have 16 days. Lots can happen between now and then!"
Despite a seemingly widespread support from QAnon fans, some have slammed the March 4 theory as "BS," the news outlet learned.
Around 200,000 people denounced the "BS" plan on the Telegram channel.
QAnon groups seem to be rowing back – and have since claimed the "inauguration" is a "false flag" or a "trap" which has been cooked up by their enemies, including Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Jared Holt, a domestic extremism researcher at the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab, previously told The US Sun the latest twist on the theory is a sign of the widespread paranoia which has become more common in the Q movement since January 6.
"Pro-QAnon and broader far-right Trump movements have been plagued by paranoia since the attack on the US Capitol on January 6," he said.
"We’ve observed increasing prevalence of ‘false flag’ conspiracy theories seemingly aimed at preempting would-be violence or embarrassment."
QAnon is one of the world's most dangerous and widespread conspiracy theories.
It alleges a worldwide network of celebrities and politicians are part of a child sex-trafficking ring which is doing battle with Donald Trump.
The cult-like belief spawned out similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate and historic hoaxes about cults linked to Satanism.
“Q” is the central anonymous figure of the theory, who was claimed to be a high-ranking government official inside the Trump administration.
