President Donald Trump on Sunday morning tweeted a video of himself literally beating up CNN, calling the news network "fraud news."

The video, which appears to be edited from actual footage of Trump beating up World Wrestling Entertainment chairman and CEO Vince McMahon at "Wrestlemania 23" in 2007, shows CNN's logo over McMahon's face. Trump clotheslines McMahon and then starts punching him in the face multiple times.

The video ends with a mock-CNN slogan that reads, "Fraud News Network."

McMahon's wife, Linda, currently serves in the Trump administration as the administrator of the Small Business Administration.

Trump has had a longstanding feud with CNN since last year during his presidential campaign, when he began calling the network "fake news" for what he calls their slanted coverage of him. Trump has tweeted several times over the weekend against CNN.

CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta tweeted out the network's response to Trump's tweet on Sunday slamming the news network.

Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe over the past week released three undercover videos of CNN employees admitting to slanted coverage against Trump, including one producer who said that Trump's White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway, looks like "she got hit with a shovel."
