OYOGist.com reports that a video shared by President Trump on Twitter showing a fake CNN news reel calling the video of a black boy running from a white boy a “Trump voter” has been marked by the social network as “manipulated”.
The tweet allegedly blames CNN for calling the video a “Terrified Todler Runs From Racist Baby”, with a CNN logo and branding on a portion of the video that shows the black boy running ahead of the white boy.
The video then continued to show the full clip, where the black boy had originally ran to meet his friend, the white boy and both of them exchanged a hug. This time, the portion of the clip does not include the CNN caption in it, but ended with a campaign-style caption that reads, “AMERICA IS NOT THE PROBLEM. FAKE NEWS IS. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.”
Watch the video (with our caption included) below:
