The clip is an edited version of Trump's appearance on WWE's WrestleMania 23 in 2007, in which he beat up the wrestling empire's head honcho, and Trump's longtime friend, Vince McMahon, before shaving McMahon's hair.

The edited version of the clip has circulated on Reddit's r/The_Donald — which has become a hub for followers of alt-right and far-right ideologies, and fervent Trump supporters — over the last few days prior to the President tweeting it. It is not clear how the president became aware of the clip.

Trump's White House press team have attempted to focus the media's attention on the president's policy agenda in recent days, but seem to have been thwarted by the president himself, who has devoted time to stoking his Twitter feuds with both CNN and the hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Trump's feud with CNN has escalated over the last week, following the resignations of three reporters after a report into the Russia investigation was retracted. The president has started to refer to the network as "Fraud News Network," which appears at the end of today's video clip.

But he then smoothly launched into the administration's talking points and added: "No one would perceive that as a threat. I hope they don't."

"What I'm concentrated on is the job he's given me," Price added.

When asked if the tweet violated Twitter's Terms of Service, which prohibits "violent threats (direct or indirect)," a spokesperson for the social-media company said, "we don't comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons."

The White House did not immediately return requests for comment from BuzzFeed News.
