Donald Trump retweets poorly edited clip of ‘toddler running away from racist baby’
Donald Trump has retweeted a cheapfake video of a racist baby that has subsequently been taken off social media.
The video shows a white toddler chasing a black child down the street, alongside a CNN news strap that reads, “Terrified todler runs from racist baby.” (yes, toddler is spelt incorrectly in this fake news). The doctored video then ends by saying "America isn't the problem... Fake news is".
CNN was quick to debunk the fake news and shared the original story. Twitter labelled it as manipulated media as it was regarded deceptively altered or fabricated.
