Trump doctors CNN footage in video condemning fake news


Donald Trump has posted a video with what journalists are reporting as doctored footage.

A video of a white baby chasing a black baby, with the caption: "Terrified toddler runs from racist baby", was posted on Donald Trump's official Twitter account. The caption appears beside a CNN logo, and is followed by a clip of what actually happened; the two toddlers hugged before playfully chasing each other.

The clip then shows a title reading "America is not the problem, fake news is". The original CNN video package has since been shared widely, proving that the original story did not suggest racism between the two toddlers, but in fact centered around the toddlers' affection for each other.
