Donald Trump shared a video on his Twitter on Thursday of two toddlers of different races to push an idea that racism isn’t an issue in the United States but that “fake news” is.
The video opens up with an African American baby running in front of a caucasian baby with a fake chyron of “CNN” that read: “Terrified Toddler Runs From Racist Baby.”
The video then goes on to show that the two babies are actually friends and they’re playing. The video ends with the captions: “America isn’t the problem, fake news is.”

After being weirded out by Trump’s video, Twitter users decided to give the president a lesson.
WTF is this? Why are you using these children as a political tool?
