President Trump rebukes toy gun video

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked a music video in which rapper Snoop Dogg points a fake gun at a clown-like Trump figure.
    
He tweeted: "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!"
    
Snoop Dogg's video for "Lavender" makes references to issues including immigration and the police killings of unarmed black men, and features characters dressed as clowns including one called Ronald Klump.
    
Towards the end, the rapper points a fake handgun at the head of the Trump-like character and the replica weapon releases a flag which reads, "Bang."
    
In an interview earlier this week with celebrity website TMZ, Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, called the video "totally disgraceful" and said the musician owed Trump an apology.
     
The 45 year-old California rapper told Billboard he saw Trump as a clown.
