Trump ‘takes swing’ at Clin­ton

The Straits Times - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON United States Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump yes­ter­day retweeted a doc­tored video of him­self tak­ing a golf swing and hit­ting for­mer Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial ri­val Hil­lary Clin­ton, who then stum­bles as she boards a plane.

Mrs Clin­ton had been back on the Repub­li­can pres­i­dent’s Twit­ter feed in re­cent days as she pro­moted What Hap­pened, her new book about the 2016 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, with Mr Trump re­sum­ing his cam­paign at­tack of “crooked Hil­lary”.

The video, retweeted by sev­eral users, shows Mr Trump hit­ting a golf ball be­fore segue­ing to a 2011 clip of Mrs Clin­ton trip­ping and fall­ing as she boards a plane. The footage is edited to make it ap­pear that Mrs Clin­ton was hit by the ball.

“Don­ald Trump’s amaz­ing golf swing #CrookedHil­lary,” the tweet read.

Mr Trump at­tacked Mrs Clin­ton di­rectly last Wed­nes­day on Twit­ter. “Crooked Hil­lary Clin­ton blames ev­ery­body (and ev­ery­thing) but her­self for her elec­tion loss. She lost the de­bates and lost her di­rec­tion!” he said.

Mrs Clin­ton, in re­sponse, sug­gested that he read her ear­lier book, It Takes A Vil­lage, a pic­ture book for chil­dren.
