In other words, it looks like Trump's tweet containing the altered media was created to lend credence to his frequent claim that CNN churns out "fake news".

CNN's communications team replied to the president's latest tweet, saying: "CNN did cover this story - exactly as it happened".

Twitter twice flagged Trump tweets over the past month. The clip's creator may have been aiming for satire rather than explicitly trying to spread disinformation, but many of Trump's followers did not realize that the video was falsely altered.
