President Donald Trump retweeted a cartoon image Tuesday morning showing a train running into a person appearing to represent the cable news network CNN. He soon after deleted his post.
The meme carried the headline: “Fake news can’t stop the Trump train” and pictured a train with Trump’s name on both the front and side hitting a person with a CNN logo covering his face.
Over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, a man attending the “Unite the Right” rally supporting neo-Nazis and white supremacists drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters demonstrating peacefully. One woman named Heather Heyer was killed and nearly 20 others injured.
