On Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cillizza tweeted a GIF that appeared to have crosshairs from a rifle scope set on President Donald Trump and then deleted it, claiming that it was “unintended.”
Cillizza’s tweet stated: “Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty.”
In a subsequent tweet, Cillizza wrote: “I’ve deleted a GIF about President Trump. We use @GifGrabber to make our GIFs and it defaults to the image below as a first frame. To clear up any unintended confusion, I’ve removed the tweet.”
Cillizza has tweeted multiple GIFs of President Donald Trump over the last 24 hours that don’t have crosshairs on them.
A spokesperson for CNN did not respond to a request for comment from The Daily Wire.
