Trump hypes mock video of golf ball seen striking Clinton

FILE - In this July 31, 2015 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drives his golf buggy during the second day of the Women's British Open golf championship on the Turnberry golf course in Turnberry, Scotland. Trump wants to build another huge wall, this time to keep out the rising seas threatening to swamp his luxury golf resort in Ireland. He has called climate change a “con job” and a “hoax.” But in a permit application filed earlier this month in County Clare, Ireland, the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel is seeking permission to build a two-mile-long stone wall between it and the Atlantic Ocean.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has retweeted a mock video that shows him striking a golf ball that — in the next frame — seemingly hits Hillary Clinton in the back and knocks her down as she boards a plane.

The re-edited video appears to be a doctored version of news footage from 2011 that shows the then-secretary of state falling after climbing the stairs to the plane.

The tweet says: “Donald Trump’s amazing golf swing #CrookedHillary.”

Trump has been critical of his 2016 rival after she re-emerged in the spotlight recently to promote her new book detailing the closely contested presidential campaign.
