According to the MagaPill about page: “MAGAPILL is here to ensure that President Trump’s Legacy is properly documented. It’s been recently reported that 95% of the News Media’s coverage of Trump is negative, while only 5% is positive. This is the definition of an unfair bias and one of the main reasons why everyday American’s confidence in the “Main Stream” media is at an all-time low.”

Analysis / Bias
In review, the MagaPill website consists of links to archived news stories that highlight Donald Trump’s accomplishments as President. Mostly, they link to mainstream news sources; however, they also often link to the Alt-Right website Breitbart, which has a poor track record with fact-checkers. MagaPill has also been highlighted as a fake news conspiracy website by the credible conservative Weekly Standard. MagaPill frequently uses its Twitter account to promote conspiracy theories such as the Seth Rich Murder.
A factual search reveals a failed fact check.
Overall, this is a Questionable source based on the promotion of one-sided Donald Trump propaganda, debunked conspiracy theories, and some false claims. (D. Van Zandt 11/27/2017) Updated (09/07/2020)
