Trump, who has 33.1 million Twitter followers, tweeted late Saturday.

It should be noted that in addition to these tweets, Trump took on two journalists of the channel MSNBC, another channel of the television as it deems biased, since nearly 3 days. With the pair now on vacation, guest Katty Kay opted not to mock the president's recent actions, but take the media to task for giving it so much attention.

After another weekend of verbal attacks against the media, with a special emphasis on CNN, the President of the United States still hasn't backed down.

White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert also tells ABC that he thinks Trump's "beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to".

They added that Trump 'is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office.

The video appeared to be posted on Reddit four days prior to Mr. Trump's early morning tweet, in a sub-Reddit thread called "The Donald".


The video Trump tweeted is from WrestleMania 23 in 2007 when Trump competed versus WWE head Vince McMahon during a staged "battle of the billionaires" fight where each chose one wrestler to represent them.

Ultimately, as the victor of Wrestlemania 23's "Battle of the Billionaires", Trump then shaved Vince McMahon bald in the wrestling ring in front of thousands. CNN is the news outlet that arguably takes the brunt of Trump's media hatred.

Sunday's tweet comes a day after Trump escalated an intensely personal feud with two high-profile talk show hosts, suggesting without evidence that their network is biased against him. The user who posted the video has a history of posts using anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant language. "@SHSanders45 6/29/17", CNN's public relations office tweeted.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during the White House Press briefing four days ago, "The president in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence".

Critics have suggested the video promotes violence against the media, with Trump using a post a few hours after that one to further attack the "fake" and "dishonest" media.

"Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied", CNN said.
