Trump Shares Doctored Image of His Golf Ball Hitting Hillary Clinton

President Donald Trump retweeted an edited video Sunday morning that showed him swinging a golf club and appearing to hit his former presidential campaign rival Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

Trump also retweeted a meme suggesting he will win all 50 states in the 2020 presidential race, and several memes crediting him for boosts in the economy since taking office.

Asked during an appearance on ABC's This Week whether the tweet made him doubt the sincerity of Mr Trjmp's outreach to Democrats, Rep. Adam Schiff said it was "distressing" to have a president who "will tweet and re-tweet things as juvenile as that".

Trump also retweeted a Bloomberg Technology article published August 17 in which a financial analyst estimated that Twitter's market value would fall by up to $2 billion if the president were to stop tweeting. The imagery of Mrs. Clinton tripping in the aircraft's doorway was from 2011, shot when she boarded a flight in Yemen.

His profile also includes a link to his account on Gab.ai, a growing social media site championing free speech that has become a favorite of some of the white nationalists Twitter has banned for harassment or hate speech.

Back in July, Mr Trump vented his rage against the media by posting someone else's doctored anti-CNN video that showed Mr Trump pummelling a man in a business suit - the man's face obscured by the CNN logo - outside a wrestling ring. And frankly, I think they're a little off, too.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday about the President's tweet and whether Kelly was aware of it.

In a pair of tweets last week, Mr Trump took direct aim at Mrs Clinton.

David Urban, a former Trump campaign adviser, was dismissive on CNN's "State of the Union".

"Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss", he said. "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!". Clinton's new memoir What Happened enumerates ways in which Trump's campaign allegedly allowed Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 election, and has topped Amazon's bestseller list.
