US President Donald Trump published on his official Twitter account on Sunday morning, a 2007 video of him body-slamming and punching WWE CEO Vince McMahon with the CNN logo on his face, to make it appear as though Trump was pummeling the TV network.

Shortly after the video was released on the president’s account, CNN reported the following response:
“This is a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against journalists. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with President Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea or working on his health law, he is dealing with childish behavior well below the honor of the institution of the presidency. We will continue to do our work. He has to start doing his job. ”
Trump piped yesterday: “The phony and fraudulent media work hard to convince Republicans and others that I do not have to be on the social network – but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches, and social media.” Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump also wrote that he is considering “changing the name ‘false news CNN’ to ‘Fraud News CNN’
I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!
