Trump retweets meme of him hitting Hillary Clinton with golf ball

When pressed on why the president may have retweeted a doctored image showing him physically hurting the former secretary of state, former Trump adviser David Urban stressed that his scandal-prone boss was not necessarily endorsing violence against Clinton.

He posted about talking to the South Korean president, calling Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man", campaigning for a Republican attorney general candidate in MI, and retweeted several pro-Trump Twitter accounts that had shared images of him bringing jobs back to the USA, "making America great again", or attacking The New York Times.

But, this isn't the first time Trump has trolled Democrats on Twitter.

The White House issued no immediate comment, and Trump aides have said in the past that his tweets "speak for themselves".

Donald Trump's itchy Twitter finger has plunged the president into controversy again after he shared a clip depicting himself striking former opponent Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

While some Twitter users praised Trump for his "sense of humour" following the golf ball retweet, others berated him.

In a morning barrage of tweets, Mr Trump endorsed a Republican gubernatorial candidate and seemingly mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - calling him "Rocket Man" - before beginning to retweet a series of supportive messages and memes.

Trump slammed Clinton over her new book earlier this week too, tweeting that she "blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss".

"It doesn't help, I think in terms of his stature, it doesn't help in terms of the stature of our whole country". The "deplorables" came back to haunt Hillary.

It's a big week for President Trump.
