(RNN) - Donald Trump's attack on CNN has now gotten literal.

Sunday morning Trump tweeted a video of him attacking and repeatedly punching "CNN."

The video is an altered version of a WWE stunt Trump was involved with.

Trump tweeted Saturday he would call CNN "Fraud News" and "FNN" rather than the "fake news" moniker he has been using.

Trump tweeted the media were trying to convince him to stop posting on social media. He also said I am president and they're not" while speaking to veterans Saturday. He posted that it was "not presidential - it's MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL."

The post comes at a time when Trump is under fire for personal attacks on MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinsky. Trump has not backed away from those comments.

The video also stands in contrast to statements by Trump and his staff that he does not condone violence.
