Trump Retweets GIF Showing Him Hitting Hillary Clinton With A Golf Ball

President Donald Trump playing golf.

US President Donald Trump has retweeted an edited video that showed him hitting his former presidential campaign rival Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

The animated GIF image Trump retweeted merged two footage - him taking a swing on a golf course and Clinton tripping and falling as she boarded a plane in 2011 as the secretary of state. The footage is edited in such way that it shows Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before she fell.

"Donald Trump's amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary," the tweet is titled.

Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub has slammed Trump for the retweet and said he reported it to Twitter for violating the social media platform's rules of conduct.

"The President of the United States just retweeted a video vignette that imagines him assaulting his political rival. The man is unfit," tweeted Shaub, who joined the ethics office as a staff attorney early during the George W Bush administration and was appointed as the office's director by President Barack Obama.
