The US President Donald Trump triggered a chain of debates and reactions on the conduct of President by tweeting a doctored video of him beating a figure with CNN's logo for a face.

It was a video of him body-slamming and beating the WWE chairman Vince Macmohan back in 2007.

This is not President Trump's first attack on media outlets, he has been attacking the media since the beginning of his campaign calling several media outlets like New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC 'Fake News'. He also threw out reporters from his campaigns and barred the media from recording the press briefings.

More recently, President Donald Trump got in a fight with the MSNBC's Morning Joe tweeting, "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..". "...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!".

Trump continued his attacks despite heated response from the media and even conservatives. His action triggered a long chain of reaction and debates between his supporters and liberals.Some are worried about the freedom and safety of the journalists.

Some are worried about the freedom and safety of the working journalists saying the social promotion of violence against journalists may create a livid environment against the media. Meanwhile, others are questioning the Trump's conduct as presidential. Trump defended his take saying the action befitted a 'modern day' President.

The Committee to Protect Journalists in reaction to the President's tweet released a statement saying that targeting media outlets "creates a chilling effect and fosters an environment where further harassment or even physical attack is deemed acceptable."
