Yes, Trump Just Retweeted This GIF of Him Hurting Hillary Clinton

One tweet opened with the phrase "Donald Trump's fantastic golf swing #CrookedHillary" along with a video of a man in a red hat driving a golf ball that then strikes and knocks down a blond woman as she boards an airplane - implying that the video showed the president assaulting Ms Clinton, the former Democratic nominee whom Mr Trump defeated for the presidency.

Some pointed out that while the retweet may have been motivated by little more than an attempt at humor and a reference to golf, one of the president's most frequent hobbies, but there's little comedy to be found in any suggestion of physical violence, especially against a female political opponent.

Clinton's new book about the campaign was released last week, and Trump has repeatedly used Twitter to deride her as a sore loser. The second shows footage of Clinton tripping as she boards a plane, with the video altered to show her being struck in the back with a golf ball.

But, this isn't the first time Trump has trolled Democrats on Twitter.

"Donald Trump's incredible golf swing #CrookedHillary", the tweet said, using a hashtag to reference the smear campaign against the former Democratic candidate for president.

White House spokeswomen did not respond to a request for comment.

In July he tweeted an edited video that shows him body-slamming a figure with the CNN logo superimposed on its face.

In a morning barrage of tweets, Mr Trump endorsed a Republican gubernatorial candidate and seemingly mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - calling him "Rocket Man" - before beginning to retweet a series of supportive messages and memes.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss", Trump said. "She lost the debates and lost her direction!" he said. Reuters reported. "The "deplorables" came back to haunt Hillary".

"It doesn't help, I think, in terms of his stature". They expressed their feelings loud and clear.

"Important meetings and calls scheduled for today", Trump tweeted.
