Trump Tweets Intense 'Jobs not Mobs' Video Pushed on Reddit—and Nobody Seems to Know Who Made it

President Donald Trump posted to Twitter on Wednesday an intense video pushing the message "jobs not mobs," the origin of which is unclear.

The video, which looks like a viral campaign ad for the midterms, pitches the "GOP's America" versus "the left's America" as a choice between a booming economy where new jobs are created against streets ruled by violent mobs of anti-Trump protestors.

At the end of the video, Trump's 2016 Democratic rival Hillary Clinton appears and says: "That's when civility can start again," before the president's slogan "jobs not mobs" is shown on screen.

Along with the video, Trump tweeted: "#JOBSNOTMOBS! VOTE REPUBLICAN NOW!!"

Since tweeting it around 7.25 p.m. on Wednesday evening, the video has notched up 817,000 views on Twitter alone at the time of writing.

There is no indication in the video of who made it, but Trump's tweet wasn't the clip's debut. The video gained a lot of attention on Reddit almost two weeks before Trump's tweet. After it was posted to a subreddit called r/The_Donald, a forum for the president's supporters, it was upvoted 7,400 times.

It appears the video surfaced first on a YouTube account called "Trump 2020" which is connected to a Twitter account for a user called @JFord1984, who has tweeted four times. It is the only video on the YouTube channel and was uploaded on October 17.

Newsweek emailed to ask who they are and if they made the video. Nobody responded immediately.

Before reaching Trump, the video was posted to Twitter by the actor and conservative James Woods. The video in that tweet was watched over a million times.

Also in the video is Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat calling for the impeachment of Trump and one of the president's regular targets for derision. In her brief appearance, Waters is speaking at a rally and says: "You push back on them."

And there is a clip of former Attorney General Eric Holder's now infamous quote in which he says, responding to Michelle Obama's mantra "when they go low, we go high," that: "When they go low, we kick them."

Interspersed is footage from various protests in which property and people are attacked.

The first segment of the video is a string of business reports about how well the American economy is doing and the rate of job creation.
