President Trump triggered liberals when he appeared to troll Joe Biden with an altered video of the Democratic presidential nominee playing the NWA song “F— tha Police.”

The president retweeted the manipulated video – obviously meant as a joke – Wednesday that was posted by the parody account “The United Spot” which showed Biden playing the 1988 anti-police song on his phone. The original clip was a moment during the former vice president’s campaign stop in Florida where he was criticized for pandering to voters in a salute to Hispanic Heritage Month.

“What is this all about?” Trump asked in his tweet along with the parody video.

Biden pulled out his phone at the campaign event in Kissimmee, momentarily making some dance moves as he played  “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, the Puerto Rican artist who introduced him at the event. The altered video, which was flagged as “manipulated media” by Twitter, dubbed the controversial NWA song over the original.

WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

Naturally, the president set off his critics.

Other Twitter users found the humor in the clip.

The president retweeted the video again later, commenting: “China is drooling. They can’t believe this!”

But Biden didn’t need any help from Trump in getting his own share of criticism over the moment in Florida that also featured actress Eva Longoria and singer Ricky Martin as the campaign commemorated Hispanic Heritage Month.

“I just have one thing to say,” he said after approaching the podium, looking down at his phone. “Hang on. Here.”

“I’ll tell you what — if I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be elected president by acclamation,” he added, laughing.

Many slammed Biden, however, and accused him of pandering, while some noted that the “cringe” moment could be worse than the 2016 “Pokemon Go to the polls” episode and others with then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“After decades of terrorizing Latin America with imperialist war crimes and coups, deporting millions of immigrants, and then ignoring Latinos in his campaign, Biden played ‘Despacito’ on his phone to try to seem hip,” journalist and filmmaker Ben Norton tweeted. “Someone should probably tell him what the lyrics are about.”

“Does @JoeBiden realize that Despacito means “slowly”? Fits well with Slow Joe,” Trump campaign senior advisor Mercedes Schlapp wrote.

“I can’t believe this guy is having trouble connecting with Latino voters,” Matt Whitlock, senior advisor for the ‎National Republican Senatorial Committee, tweeted.
