The video clip is from his appearance on WWE’s Wrestlemania 23, which shows him fighting Vince McMahon ringside at the “Battle of the Billionaires.” The clip is digitally mirrored in an attempt to avoid copyright infringement.

Trump has been engaged in an ongoing battle against CNN and other media outlets in general since his presidential campaign and now during his presidency. 

Last week, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump had “in no way, form or fashion has ever encouraged violence, quite the contrary.”

Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski called Trump the “Ernest Hemingway of Twitter” in a Fox News interview Saturday, in perhaps the most generous invocation of Ernest Hemingway in recorded history.

The Huffington Post reports that the GIF image originated on Reddit’.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned the tweet.

Ultimately, as the winner of Wrestlemania 23’s “Battle of the Billionaires,” Trump then shaved Vince McMahon bald in the wrestling ring in front of thousands.
