President Donald Trump comes up with a new round of his attacks on the media Sunday, tweeting a video that seemed to endorse violence against journalists.

The video appears to be a repurposed clip of Trump, then a reality TV star, beating up WWE owner Vince McMahon in 2007 ― with the logo for CNN, which Trump has continually labeled a “fake news” media outlet, replacing McMahon’s head.
Trump’s official White House account subsequently retweeted the video, which appeared on a Reddit thread on Wednesday, entitled “Trump takes down fake news.”
In its official response to Trump’s Sunday tweet, CNN cited Sanders’ statement.
