DONALD Trump has retweeted a doctored video showing Joe Biden nodding his head to NWA's 'F*** Da Police' days after two cops were ambushed and shot in Compton.
Claudia Apolinar, 31, and a 24-year-old male colleague were both injured when an unknown gunman opened fire through the window of their patrol car in Compton, Los Angeles at around 7pm on Saturday.
But on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump shared a crudely edited video that appeared to show his Democrat presidential rival Joe Biden nodding his head along to the famous 1980's rap tune.
The video, created by self styled "satire" YouTube channel The United Spot, was emblazoned with the caption: “Joe Biden has just ONE thing to say and it ain’t good. Listen to this.”
A few hours later, the president retweeted the ridiculous video, saying: “What is this all about?”
The real footage of Biden used in the video came from a campaign event in Florida on Tuesday aimed at winning over Latino voters.
After being introduced by singer Luis Fonsi, Biden whipped out his phone and played “Despacito.”
Trump and his campaign have repeatedly utilized doctored photos and videos of Biden, in one case using manipulated images to make it appear as if the former vice president were “diminished” and “hiding.”
It is unclear why Mr Trump shared the latest video in the first place.
But the tweet comes in the aftermath of two brave police officers being shot and injured in Compton, Los Angeles.
Apolinar, a mother of a six-year-old who graduated from the LA Police Academy in 2019, was reportedly shot in the jaw and torso.
In images obtained by ABC7, she can be seen in a photo taken seconds after the attack standing next to a pillar with her upper body covered in blood.
The male deputy, who was shot in the head, can be seen kneeling down by her side while holding out a blood-soaked hand while a gun lays on the ground in front of them.
Reports say that even after being shot, Apolinar managed to radio for help and apply a torniquet to her partner's wounds.
A spokeswoman for Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said that both Apolinar and her colleague are expected to survive the attack.
