The tweeted video, with more than 7.7 million views and 125,000 retweets, then goes on to show the original video and concludes: "America is not the problem".

As of this writing, the Trump tweet with the video in question remained available on Twitter (and had been viewed 20 million times so far). In addition, Twitter may label tweets containing synthetic and manipulated media to help people understand their authenticity and to provide additional context.

The aim of these "manipulated media" tags is to true and turn people against fake news. "Just as we reported your positions on race (and poll numbers)", CNN replied to the tweet.

Facebook has removed a post by President Trump that featured a doctored video of two toddlers.

"If it did slow down, frankly, I think we're way ahead of ourselves if you wanna know the truth", Trump said.
