President Donald Trump retweeted a meme shared by one of his supporters Tuesday morning, showing a cartoon “Trump Train” running into a person with CNN’s logo for a head.

“Fake news can’t stop the Trump Train,” the text of the cartoon meme read.

Trump’s decision to share the image triggered outrage from reporters, who compared it to Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville.

The president’s Twitter account undid the retweet later in the morning.

The meme is taken from a Gary Varvel cartoon of Democrats unsuccessfully trying to stop the “Trump Train.”
