Trump's CNN wrestling video appears to be a looped version of a gif posted four days ago on a pro-Trump subreddit, The Daily Beast reported.
The user who posted the gif? HanAssholeSolo.
In 2007 if you said "One day President Trump will tweet out a GIF from Reddit user HanAssholeSolo" people would think you were bananapants.— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) July 2, 2017
"Congratulations /u/HanAssholeSolo, your dankery has been tweeted by the President of the United States," read one post on the subreddit.
Some found the news unsettling.
One user, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, said it was "reassuring."

CNN released a statement Sunday morning after President Trump tweeted old wrestling footage altered to look like he was beating up the network.
President Trump continued his assault on CNN on Sunday morning, tweeting wrestling footage altered to look like he was beating up the network.
Trump has intensified his social media assault on CNN in recent days after three journalists left the network following the publication of a Russia-related article that was later retracted. He tweeted this on Tuesday.
Wow, CNN had to retract big story on "Russia," with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2017
And he retweeted this reimagination of the network's logo.
He then took aim at CNN's ratings.
Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories. Ratings way down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2017
Trump called the network "garbage journalism" on Saturday.
And he considered giving it a new moniker on Saturday evening.
Homeland Security Adviser Thomas Bossert defended Trump's wrestling footage tweet.
But CNN's Ana Navarro was not amused.
CNN isn't the only media outlet to draw Trump's ire in recent days. He has launched personal attacks on Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," and labeled several other outlets "fake news."
