Donald Trump’s with yet another controversial tweet.

George W Bush had his war on terror, now Donald Trump has his war on fake news. The President of The United States looks to be in a lone war against “Fake News” with one of his main targets being none other than one of the US’s biggest news organisations, CNN.

On Sunday, Twitter, which has ultimately become the battleground for this ongoing fight between the former reality TV star and the CNN, was set alight by yet another controversial tweet from the US President. This time Trump posted a video of himself during a TV stint on WWE, the famous wrestling show, where he tackles a man with a CNN logo photoshopped onto his face to the ground.. Accompany the tweet were the hashtags #FraudNews and #FNN.

Here is the tweet:

 

CNN responded straight away, “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters,” CNN said in a statement released after Trump’s tweet went out. “Clearly, [deputy press secretary] Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so. Instead of preparing for his first overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his healthcare bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.”

As the tweet was retweeted by many of Trumps 33.3 million followers, many took to the same platform to respond, posting parody videos and memes in reaction to the latest online antics of the US President. Trump, as always, divided opinion.

Here are some of the best:
