Trump retweets doctored video of golf ball hitting Clinton

"The President of the United States just retweeted a video vignette that imagines him assaulting his political rival".

The GIF was part of several creations the Twitter user had sent in response to a tweet from Trump about Clinton's newly released memoir "What Happened", which chronicles her account of the 2016 election.

"Donald Trump's awesome golf swing #CrookedHillary", the tweet read. The footage is edited to make it appear as though Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before her fall. Another presidential Twitter share last month - later deleted - showed a train hitting a person, again with a CNN logo imposed on the figure's head.

He said: "Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss".

But Twitter was having none of it, with many viewing the tweet as yet another example of Trump's deep-seated misogyny and a blatant endorsement of violence against Clinton and women in general.

It is not the first time Mr Trump has been accused of inappropriate Mr Trump repeatedly threatened to jail Ms Clinton during his campaign, encouraging chants of "lock her up", and vowed during a presidential debate to appoint a special prosecutor to pursue Ms Clinton - an extraordinary promise of political retribution.

Referring to Mrs Clinton's past description of some Trump supporters, he later tweeted: "The "deplorables" came back to haunt Hillary".

"It doesn't help, I think in terms of his stature, it doesn't help in terms of the stature of our whole country".

White House spokeswomen did not respond to a request for comment. They expressed their feelings loud and clear.
