The overall message from the Twitter spree seemed to be that the economy and military were getting stronger, which the president summed up with one of his own tweets.

The GIF, which was created by splicing two videos, shows Mr. Trump swinging a golf club and the ball striking Mrs. Clinton in the back as she boards a plane, knocking her forward.

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

What you enjoy watching on television could likely reveal who you voted for in the 2016 presidential election.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss", Trump said. The "deplorables" came back to haunt Hillary. "She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!".

But Broad did hold on to a chance at mid-on off the bowling of Toby Roland-Jones to send West Indies into lunch on 153 for six. That left England with a meagre target of 107 and they finished on 107/1 off 28 overs as they took a three-match series 2-1.


Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub, who repeatedly criticized the administration about potential conflicts of interest before resigning in July, slammed Trump for the retweet and said he reported it to Twitter for violating the social media platform's rules of conduct. Clinton admits mistakes during the campaign in the book but gives a harsh account of factors she believes led to Trump's victory, including alleged interference by Russian Federation on his behalf and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey announcement that investigators were looking at a new trove of emails related to Clinton.

A senior Democrat, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, said the retweet did not make him question Trump's recent outreach to Democrats but was disturbing. And frankly, I think they're a little off, too.

While most of the media will be concentrating on the fact that Trump tweeted an animation of him hurting Clinton, it is also interesting that he chose to tweet a GIF which shows him golfing.

Trump has often retweeted or responded to random Twitter accounts praising him before.
