President Donald Trump’s election campaign released a new video on Twitter on Monday, portraying the president as Yoda, protagonist in the Star Wars films, fighting cable news networks, according to The Hill.

The video was themed for May 4th, which is perceived as “Star Wars Day,” and was based on a scene in “Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith.”

In the scene, Trump’s face was attached to Yoda’s body, and the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s face on Emperor Palpatine, the main antagonist in the film, who would lead a clone trooper with CNN’s logo to kill the Jedi. Another trooper with MSNBC’s logo joined, and later Trump decapitated both.

Trump faced similar criticism in 2017 when he tweeted a video from WWE, which had him beating up a character with CNN’s logo.

Meanwhile, there are 1,202,788 cases of COVID-19 in the U.S., along with 69,128 related deaths.
