After criticizing MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and its hosts, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Donald Trump returned to social media for another round of early morning tirade against the mainstream media. On Sunday, the POTUS targeted CNN in a disturbing video he personally uploaded on Twitter.

The 28-second clip is a video of a WWE fight, which was edited to show the U.S. leader beating a man with CNN's logo on his face. Trump even added the hashtags "Frauds News CNN" and "FNN" in his Twitter post, which now has almost 240,000 retweets and about 400,000 likes.

The video, as expected, drew a mixed response from both his detractors and supporters. Some of them laughed at the image, while others were infuriated of the president's tactless behavior on social media. But more than these reactions, several members of the media have expressed their concern of how Trump is handling his problem with the press.

'Violence against reporters'

CNN, in an official statement, returned to Sarah Huckabee Sanders' statement where she denied that the president was promoting violence when he targeted Scarborough and Brzezinski for allegedly making him a regular subject of their personal attacks.

It said the Principal Deputy "clearly lied" and criticized the U.S. leader for attacking the media instead of working on more important issues.

"Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, ‎dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office.

We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his." CNN wrote.

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press also slammed the POTUS for his recent anti-media post which they said promotes violence against reporters. Dean Baquet of the New York Times said it was unbecoming for the president to criticize the members of the media for doing their duties.

Call to ban Trump on Twitter

His controversial post has pushed his detractors to start a motion to ban the U.S. president from the social media platform for allegedly promoting violence against the fourth estate. Michael Hawley, an artist, and educator submitted a formal letter requesting Twitter to shut down Trump's official account for allegedly encouraging "frequent abuse and harassment" in his posts.

Twitter, however, explained that they have found no reason to suspend the leader's account after they have reviewed his CNN tweet according to their guidelines. The social media platform specifically pointed out three factors which included the subject surrounding the post, the several ways it could be understood, and the lack of details in the said tweet.
