President Trump again raises prospect of decoupling economy from China

Trump posts faked video of Biden

WASHINGTON DC (AFP):US President Donald Trump, who is trying to persuade voters that his challenger Joe Biden will encourage violent crime, retweets a faked video Wednesday purporting to show the Democrat playing a crudely worded anti-police rap song.

In the video, which Twitter later marked as “manipulated media,” Biden stands at a podium, takes out his cellphone and tells the audience, “I have just one thing to say.”

He then appears to play N.W.A’s 1988 protest song “Fuck tha Police” and dances slightly, smiling.

After a few seconds, he jokes: “If I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be, I’d be elected president by acclamation.”

“China is drooling,” Trump writes over the retweet. The problem is that Biden did not play N.W.A’s song.
