Chelsea Clinton Slams Trump For His Latest Violent And Controversial Retweet

Updated 9 months ago

People were appalled when Donald Trump retweeted a cartoon depicting a "Trump train" hitting a CNN reporter Tuesday morning.

This isn't Trump's first tweet depicting violence against CNN, but the timing seemed especially insensitive. Over the weekend, a white supremacist rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters during the Charlottesville rally, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.
