Fake Video of Trump Murdering Media Outlets and Political Opponents Shown at His Miami Resort
A video of President Donald Trump attacking and murdering media outlets and his political opponents was shown at Trump National Doral Miami resort, as first reported by the New York Times. The video is a scene from the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service and was altered to show the President committing a massacre in a church full of ‘fake news’.
In the video, Trump violently attacks and kills several news outlets, including CNBC, the Huffington Post and CNN. He is also depicted attack Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters and critics like Kathy Griffin. Trump is shown attacking Republican Senator Mitt Romney, setting Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders on fire and assaulting former President Barack Obama.
The video was shown at a conference held by American Priority, a pro-Trump group. It was reportedly created by someone on a website created far-right personality Carpe Donktum. There is no evidence that Carpe Donktum personally created the video, however.
5. As much as I hate to post this, given how much people are talking about this story, and that it involves the president's club, his supporters, and an organization that supports him, here's the video in question: pic.twitter.com/qqtllitsIP

They called on the President to denounce the video. The White House Correspondents’ Association likewise condemned it.
