A Twitter spokesman told The Associated Press the tweet targeting CNN was Trump’s most shared post.
In the video, which was taken from Trump’s appearance at WWE’s Wrestlemania in 2007, Trump is seen tackling and then pummeling a man with CNN’s logo superimposed over his face.
Trump faced backlash for his tweet going after CNN, with some journalists and lawmakers saying that Trump appeared to be promoting violence against the media.
CNN responded to the tweet Sunday, calling it a “sad day” when the president encourages violence against reporters.
“Instead of preparing for his 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,” the network said in a statement.
The tweet that previously held the record was his message on the morning of election day which read, “TODAY WE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
TODAY WE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
