The social network Twitter on Wednesday labeled as “manipulated information” a video published by President Donald Trump that shows his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

In the version published by Trump, Biden appears on a podium with a cell phone in his hand and plays a popular song against police forces released by the rap band NWA in 1988.

China is drooling. They cannot believe this,” the president wrote, assuming that Biden played that song.

The image corresponds to an event with Hispanic voters that Biden held on Tuesday night in Florida.

Biden did play a song on his cell phone when he got to the stage, but it was “Despacito” and he did it as a gesture to the interpreter of the famous melody, Luis Fonsi, who had introduced it minutes before.

Trump’s tweet matches his campaign message, according to which a Biden victory in November would bring violent protests over an alleged stance by the Democrat against the police.

Trump posted the doctored video of Biden with a cell phone in hand the day after he released another video tagged #PedoBiden, a baseless accusation that his Democratic rival is a pedophile.

Mercedes Schlapp, a Trump campaign adviser, taunted Biden for playing the song “Despacito.”

“You know @JoeBiden that Despacito means (in Spanish) “slowly”? It coincides with Slow Joe, “Schlapp wrote using one of the trappings Trump has used to refer to Biden.
