Donald Trump Jr., the 39-year-old son of President Donald Trump, posted an edited video on Instagram showing his father as a fighter jet pilot in the 1986 movie “Top Gun” shooting down an enemy plane with the CNN logo, The Daily Caller reports.
Don Jr wrote: “One of the best I’ve seen,” as he reposted the video from a user called @OldRowOfficial.
His post is similar to the one President Trump posted last Sunday, showing him hitting the CNN logo in a WWE event, which caused widespread outrage from journalists.
Trump has been waging war against mainstream media particularly CNN, which he described as “fake news.”
Amid the intense scrutiny on the White House’s use of social media to attack the media, Don Jr has strongly defended his father and sister Ivanka.
The eldest of Trump’s sons, Don Jr is running the family’s huge business empire along with his brother, Eric, while their father holds office.
