Donald Trump shares video of himself hitting Hillary Clinton with golf ball

Twitter awoke Sunday morning to find President Donald Trump had retweeted a GIF of himself knocking over former opponent Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

Clinton had been back on the Republican president's Twitter feed in recent days as she promoted "What Happened", her new book about the 2016 presidential election, with Trump resuming his campaign attack of "Crooked Hillary".

In the video, Trump takes a swing, and a woman that appears to be Hillary Clinton falls to the ground as she enters a plane. "Donald Trump's awesome golf swing #CrookedHillary", the caption of the original tweet said, a reference to the term Trump coined about his vanquished opponent during last year's' presidential election.

Trump also retweeted a Bloomberg Technology article published August 17 in which a financial analyst estimated that Twitter's market value would fall by up to $2 billion if the president were to stop tweeting.

The White House issued no immediate comment, and Trump aides have said in the past that his tweets "speak for themselves". In July, he posted a video to his account that showed him punching a physical representation of CNN in the face.

Mrs Clinton's book assigns blame for her presidential loss on several factors, including interference from Russian hackers, accusations levelled at her by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and even her gender.

In a pair of tweets last week, Mr Trump took direct aim at Mrs Clinton.

Mr Trump attacked Mrs Clinton directly on Wednesday in a series of posts on the social media site. Clinton's new memoir What Happened enumerates ways in which Trump's campaign allegedly allowed Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 election, and has topped Amazon's bestseller list.

Those other tweets included an image predicting Trump would win every state for reelection in 2020, another showing Trump hauling U.S. companies that have outsourced manufacturing overseas and a tweet claiming that "only true Americans can see that president Trump is making America great". "She lost the debates and lost her direction!"

"It doesn't help, I think in terms of his stature, it doesn't help in terms of the stature of our whole country". They expressed their feelings loud and clear.
