When pressed on why the president may have retweeted a doctored image showing him physically hurting the former secretary of state, former Trump adviser David Urban stressed that his scandal-prone boss was not necessarily endorsing violence against Clinton.

President Donald Trump once again retweeted a violent meme on a Sunday morning.

The gif starts with Trump teeing off on the golf course and then cuts to a clip of Hillary Clinton tripping while boarding her plane in Yemen in 2011. The footage is edited to make it appear as though Clinton is hit in the back with a golf ball before her fall.

In another post sent in a Sunday morning flury of tweets he mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, referring to him as "rocket man".

In other messages Trump retweeted a Bloomberg story reporting he may be worth as much as $2 billion to Twitter, and boasted of America's growing military and economic might. "Too bad!", the president tweet.

Trump is now at his private Bedminster club in New Jersey ahead of his first attendance of the United Nations General Asembly meeting in NY this week. But the move comes as the Democrat has been back in the news promoting her memoir about her loss, "What Happened". Long gas lines forming in North Korea.

Trump's love of Twitter and his propensity to post controversial tweets - often very late at night or first thing in the morning - is well known. Grassroots conservative supporters of the president also fumed that Trump would grant legal status to those undocumented immigrants without securing funding for the border wall, which he continues to promise will be built despite a lack of support in Congress.
