President Trump on Sunday morning retweeted a doctored video showing him hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball — from an account that makes racial, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBT comments.

The video compliments "Trump's amazing golf swing" — the president goes to his golf clubs constantly — and shows the ball hitting a person who appears to be Clinton, who then trips while boarding an airplane.

Trump has also retweeted accounts encouraging violence against CNN journalists in the past.

Last month Trump retweeted Jack Posobiec, a notorious alt-right personality known for creating fake scandals and stirring up conspiracy theories, including the time he made a "rape Melania" poster as a hoax to make anti-Trump supporters look violent.

And a quick search through his profile shows he has shared views disparaging people. Trump has promoted fear or misinformation about people who are trans, Muslim, or Jewish, among others.
