On Sunday, July 2, Trump again led criticisms to the American news channel CNN, this time in a tweet of a rare violence published early in the morning. How far will Donald Trump reach in his attacks on the media?

Trump against Media

In his recent tweet, Donald Trump posted an edited video of himself dating from 2007 during which he appears in the wrestling ring. Donald Trump - who is then a real estate tycoon and reality TV star - claims to beat Vince McMahon, founder of WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc.).

In the 2017 version, it is a character with the CNN logo in place of the head that Mr. Trump takes by the neck and puts to the ground.

He then punches him several times before getting up and leaving. The tweet is labeled with hashtags "#FraudnewsCNN" and "#FNN" for "Fraud News Network".

Incitement to violence

CNN quickly responded in a statement, saying, "We will keep doing our job. He should start doing his."

Last week, Sarah Huckabee claimed that Donald Trump never "encouraged violence." In his camp, the reactions to his tweet of the day are divided. On ABC, Trump's security advisor Thomas Bossert believes that the White House tenant has the "right" to respond to attacks from news channels and, with his Twitter account, has created a way to communicate in a "genuine" and direct manner with the Americans. In this, Mr. Bossert is "proud" of the Head of State.

Also on ABC, political columnist Ana Navarro, a Republican who has always been very critical of Mr.

Trump, believes on the contrary that the president's message is "unacceptable" and incites "violence against the free press."

Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, the organization that provides support and assistance to journalists, on Sunday condemned the attitude of Donald Trump. Its executive director, Bruce Brown, described it as a threat of physical violence against journalists, adding that it was "unworthy of the status of the presidency."

President punches CNN and more

Donald Trump is in a continuous war against CNN, which he regularly accuses of spreading what he calls false information ("fake news").

The extent of this fighting scene also marks a new course in the unbridled use of Twitter by the President. The day before, he also triumphed by waking up to the two presenters of the MSNBC's morning show "Morning Joe," Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
