FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be false and misleading.

With the help of keywords search, we found the original video on YouTube by Comedy Central UK dated July 21, 2017.

In the video, we found that the man is not real Donald Trump but an American writer, actor, and comedian Anthony Atamanuik. The name of the comedy show is ‘The President Show’, which is just created for humour. 

At the time duration of 3:48, we can see the original clipping.


We then compared the viral video and the original video.

Hence, the viral social media video is not of real Donald Trump. Truth is that the viral video is an old video clipping taken from a comedy show ‘The President Show’ and the man smashing things was an actor.

Don’t fall for false and misleading claims.
