The president of the United States has apparently escalated his beef with the media by tweeting a video of himself wrestling a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head.

Donald Trump posted an old video Sunday morning in which the president body slams WWE Chairman Vince McMahon but, instead of his opponent's face, Trump appears to be wrestling the news network.

CNN called it a "sad day."

"It is a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the president had never done so," the network said in a statement.

The statement went on: "Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, ‎dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his."

The tweet is part of the White House's ongoing feud with news media, which Press Secretary Sean Spicer once called the people's "enemy."

Days earlier, Trump made waves with a tirade about MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in which he called them 'Psycho Joe' and 'Low IQ Crazy Mika.'

Brzezinski and Scarborough subsequently called the president "unwell."

"We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to Fox and Friends," the response continued.
