Trump retweets video of him hitting a golf ball at Hillary Clinton in early Sunday morning Twitter spree

President Donald Trump answers a question from the

In the short video, Trump takes a swing with a golf club, knocking over a woman that appears to be Hillary Clinton as she enters a plane. The imagery of Mrs. Clinton tripping in the aircraft's doorway was from 2011, shot when she boarded a flight in Yemen.

He retweeted the GIF, captioned "Donald Trump's awesome golf swing #CrookedHillary", from the account of a supporter whose profile identifies him as Mike from NY. Clinton has heavily criticised Trump recently while promoting her new book, What Happened, which deals with her 2016 election defeat.

The recording is altered to influence it to seem like Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before her fall. The "deplorables" came back to haunt Hillary. "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"

The tweet stoked outrage online, generating more than 11,000 replies, many of which condemned the president's promotion of violent imagery toward Mrs. Clinton, who, as a former first lady, has lifetime Secret Service protection.

The White House nor a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton have given a statement about the Tweet.

But that won't just be 'the team I used to be on.' That's my old team. "I know he's reached out today, as well", Thomas said. However, one huge National Basketball Association player was actually a guest during a big tournament in the U.S.

The message sparked a backlash on social media, with detractors assailing Mr Trump for inciting violence against a political rival.

A senior Democrat, US Representative Adam Schiff, said the golf ball retweet did not make him question Trump's recent outreach to Democrats, but it was disturbing.

"It doesn't help, I think, in terms of his stature".

Trump has often retweeted or responded to random Twitter accounts praising him before.

The tweet, which came as Trump prepares to head to NY for a critical round of powerhouse diplomacy with world leaders at the United Nations, followed a week during which Clinton reemerged in the spotlight as she promoted her new book, "What Happened", about the 2016 campaign, reviving her fiercest criticisms of Trump and his supporters and reigniting the debate about her stunning, unanticipated loss.
