President Donald Trump retweeted a doctored video of Democratic nominee Joe Biden at a campaign event in Florida, during which he played the song “Despacito.”

The video, originally posted by the Twitter user “The United Spot,” showed the same video but with the anti-police song F*** Tha Police by N.W.A.

In his retweet, Trump asked: “What is this all about?”

Twitter flagged the post as “manipulated media,” and linked to the actual video, where Biden can be seen walking up to the lectern and saying “I just have one thing to say,” before pulling out his phone and playing the song “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, who introduced Biden at the campaign event in Kissimmee, Fla.

Trump has continually falsely asserted that Biden wants to defund the police amidst the Black Lives Matter protests. Biden, however, told CBS News in June that he does not support defunding law enforcement, but would support conditioning federal aid on whether police meet “certain basic standards of decency and honorableness.”
