President Donald Trump retweeted an edited video Sunday morning that showed him swinging a golf club and appearing to hit his former presidential campaign rival Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.

Mr Trump retweeted the brief video on his official Twitter account early on Sunday (local time).

The video, retweeted by several users, shows Trump on a golf course hitting a ball before segueing to the doctored shot of a golf ball hitting then-Secretary of State Clinton in the back as she is boarding a plane.

He retweeted the GIF, captioned "Donald Trump's incredible golf swing #CrookedHillary", from the account of a supporter whose profile identifies him as Mike from NY.

This isn't the first time Trump has tweeted an image portraying a violent victory over one of his opponents.

The White House nor a spokesperson for Hillary Clinton have given a statement about the Tweet.

A spokesperson for Hillary Clinton declined to comment on the tweet.

Mr Trump has established a commission to investigate his unsubstantiated claims that millions of people voted illegally in 2016, when Mrs Clinton won the popular vote by almost 2.9 million votes. "She lost the debates and lost her direction!"

In a morning barrage of tweets, Mr Trump endorsed a Republican gubernatorial candidate and seemingly mocked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - calling him "Rocket Man" - before beginning to retweet a series of supportive messages and memes. They expressed their feelings loud and clear. And frankly, I think they're a little off, too. "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!"

Trump hammered Clinton over her new book prior this week as well, tweeting that she "accuses everyone (and everything) except herself for her decision misfortune".

David Urban, a former Trump campaign adviser, was dismissive on CNN's "State of the Union".
