President Donald Trump, asked about a mock video he tweeted that depicted him tackling and punching a man with the logo of CNN super-imposed on his head, said on Thursday the news network had taken the issue "too seriously".

 

Speaking at a news conference in Poland, Trump renewed his criticism of CNN and U.S. media when discussing the video, which critics said encouraged violence against journalists.

 

CNN took intense heat online after stating they may release the identity of the creator of the video (technically a .gif), a user on Reddit who had contacted CNN to apologize, if he broke his agreement to stop creating such memes.
