President Trump hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball in a GIF

Among the other obscure voices Trump chose to amplify on Sunday morning was his own - in all he posted about a dozen items, including the meme retweets, and two reposts of his own tweets from September 15.

"Donald Trump's fantastic golf swing", Mike noted of the edited clip, which also added a golf ball-sized object hitting Clinton in the back before her stumble.

The GIF combines real footage of Trump playing golf and Clinton falling over as she walks onto a plane, but the golf ball has been edited into the Clinton video to make it seem as though it had struck her.

It's unclear why the president would choose this moment to mock Clinton, whom he defeated in the presidential election last November.

Trump also retweeted a meme suggesting he will win all 50 states in the 2020 presidential race, and several memes crediting him for boosts in the economy since taking office.

"Donald Trump's incredible golf swing #CrookedHillary", the user wrote with the meme.

The tweets come after a week in which Clinton has released her memoir and North Korea launched a ballistic missile over Japan. "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"

His profile also includes a link to his account on, a growing social media site championing free speech that has become a favorite of some of the white nationalists Twitter has banned for harassment or hate speech.

"Retweets do not equal endorsement", Urban said, laughing.

While some Twitter users praised Trump for his "sense of humour" following the golf ball retweet, others berated him.

This isn't the first time Trump has tweeted an image portraying a violent victory over one of his opponents.

"It doesn't help, I think in terms of his stature, it doesn't help in terms of the stature of our whole country".
