Former president Donald Trump disseminated on social media on Friday an image of President Biden with his hands and feet tied and his mouth gagged, the latest example of the Republican candidate’s use of increasingly violent rhetoric and imagery this campaign season.

The image can be seen about halfway through a 20-second video that Trump posted on his Truth Social site. The post says it was recorded Thursday on Long Island, where Trump traveled this week to attend a wake for a recently killed police officer.

In the video, two trucks decorated with giant Trump flags and altered American flags are driving on a highway. On the tailgate door of one of the trucks is the image of Biden lying horizontally, bound and gagged.

Trump has a history of sharing and promoting violent images featuring his perceived enemies.

      I’m interested in saving as many innocent live as possible, which doesn’t include those of genocide supporting libs like you

      This isn’t a game for us, this isn’t just politics for us, we fucking hate you because you’re acting like an inhuman monster devoid of any empathy as you support the ongoing mass starvation of children

        You are absolutely seeing this as a game and not seeing the whole picture. If you weren’t you’d see that you can work to compel Biden to stop supporting this war while also acknowledging that Trump is an even greater supporter of Israel and threat to Palestine.

          You’re the one treating it like a game because you think you can trade off on the lives of Palestinian children while simultaneously washing your hands of them.
